Join us April 10 at Tractor Brewing (1800 4th St NW) from 5:00-7:00 pm to discuss our next book. We are reading The Head of the Saint by Socorro Acioli.
Here’s a sneak peek into the book from Goodreads:
After walking for days across the harsh Brazilian landscape only to be rejected by his last living relative, Samuel finds his options for survival are dwindling fast – until he comes to the hollow head of a statue, perfect for a boy to crawl into and hide…
Whilst sheltering, Samuel realises that he can hear the villagers’ whispered prayers to Saint Anthony – confessing lost loves, hopes and fears – and he begins to wonder if he ought to help them out a little. When Samuel’s advice hits the mark he becomes famous, and people flock to the town to hear about their future loves. But with all the fame comes some problems, and soon Samuel has more than just the lovelorn to deal with. A completely charming and magically told Brazilian tale, sure to capture your heart.
Be sure to get entered in our drawing for a free copy of the book!! All you have to do is comment on any blog post by April 3!
We’ll also be raffling off a copy of May’s featured book, Echo. Join us that evening to be entered!
We hope to see you on April 10!
