FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Escondido, CA - Rincón Literario (The Literary Corner), Escondido Public Library’s Bilingual Book Discussion Group, will meet on Saturday, July 26, 2014 from 3:30 – 4:45 PM in the Library’s Board Room. Author and journalist, Miriam Ruvinskis, will lead the discussion in both English and Spanish.  Una boda en Haiti / Wedding in Haiti  by Julia Alvarez is the selected book for July.

Acclaimed Dominican novelist and poet, Julia Alvarez, takes us on a journey that travels beyond borders and reflects on the joys and burdens of love–for her parents, for her husband, and for a young Haitian boy known as Piti.   In this intimate, true account, Alvarez describes experiences that challenge our way of thinking about history and how it can be reimagined when people from two countries, who are traditional enemies, can become friends.  Alvarez’s touching memoir serves to introduce readers to Haiti as it once was, and could be again. 

Miriam Ruvinskis, Rincón Literario’s facilitator, states, “Book discussions are a perfect way of nostalgically revisiting Latino culture and language while also making new friends and opening windows and paths to future experiences and other cultures.”

Rincón Literario meets regularly on the last Saturday of the month to explore literature published in English and Spanish.  On August 30, from 3:30-4:45 PM, readers will discuss Mi vida querida / Dear Life by Alice Munro.

Rincón Literario is made possible by generous support from Friends of the Escondido Public Library. This program is free and open to the public. For more information about future Rincón Literario selections and other Library programs, visit the Library’s website at library.escondido.org or call Paul Crouthamel, Adult Services Librarian, at 760-839-4814.
