Bilingual Book Discussion Group Meets at Escondido Public Library 

03/03/15 Categories: Library

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Cecy Rayphole, 760-839-4271

 

Escondido, CA - Rincón Literario (The Literary Corner), Escondido Public Library’s Bilingual Book Discussion Group, will meet on Saturday, March 28, 2015, from 3:30 – 4:45 p.m. in the Library’s Turrentine Room. En el tiempo de las mariposas / In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez, is the selected book for March. Participants will discuss books bilingually, in English and Spanish, enabling them to enjoy great literature in either language. Rincón Literario also provides an opportunity to practice either English or Spanish language skills. 

It is November 23, 1960, and the bodies of three beautiful, convent-educated sisters have been found near their wrecked Jeep at the bottom of a 150-foot cliff on the north coast of the Dominican Republic.  The local newspaper reports their deaths as an accident.  It does not mention that a fourth sister lives.  Nor does it explain that the sisters were among the leading opponents of General Raphael Leonidas Trujillo’s dictatorship.  It doesn’t have to, everyone knows of Las Mariposas – “The Butterflies.” 

Now, three decades later, Julia Alvarez immerses us in a tangled and dangerous moment in Caribbean history to tell their story in a brilliantly characterized novel, through the voices of all four sisters.  The Butterflies were extraordinary women.  Through the art and the magic of Julia Alvarez’s imagination, the martyred Butterflies live again in this novel of courage and love, and the human cost of political oppression. 

Rincón Literario meets regularly on the last Saturday of the month to explore literature published in English and Spanish. In April, readers will discuss the classis work, Cien anos de soledad / One Hundred Years of Solitude, by Gabriel García Márquez.

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 contact Cecy Rayphole at 760-839-4271 or crayphole@escondido.org.

Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library presents, “An Evening with Doris Martin, Holocaust Survivor,” on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. in the Turrentine Room.

She and her husband reside in Escondido, California part of the year, and have a home in Flagstaff, Arizona where they’ve established the Martin-Springer Institute at Northern Arizona University. The Institute’s mission is to apply the lessons of the Holocaust to promote moral courage, altruism, and tolerance. When in California, and as often as possible, Ms. Martin speaks and shares her story with groups, community members and students.

Copies of Kiss Every Step are available in the Library’s circulating collection for check-out and will be available for purchase for $15.00 at the speaking engagement.

Escondido Public Library Teen Burritos & Book Club Discusses Butter by Erin Jade Lange 

02/24/15 Categories: Library

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Cathy Janovitz, 760-839-4283

 

Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library’s Teen Burritos & Book Club, for ages 13 to 18 years, meets on Thursday, March 26, 2015, in the Turrentine Room from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. Butter, by Erin Jade Lange, will be discussed and complimentary burritos will be provided. A limited number of copies of Butter are currently available for checkout at the Library’s Information Desk.

Butter focuses on the life of a lonely and obese high school student, nicknamed “Butter.” Bullied by his fellow students, Butter struggles with his self-esteem and finds it difficult to deal with everyday life. Feeling he can’t face another day, Butter announces that he will eat himself to death and invites everyone to watch, live on the internet. This announcement gives Butter the type of attention he has never experienced and it makes his decision on whether to go through with his plan a daunting one. Lange’s moving portrayal of Butter allows a glimpse into the life of one teen on the verge of a life-changing decision.

In addition to discussing Butter, there will be time for teens to share their opinions and ideas about other books they have enjoyed and propose titles for the next meeting. Titles will be voted on by all participants and the selected book will be discussed at the Burritos and Book Club Meeting on Thursday, May 21, 2015.

All participants receive a free book or audiobook at the end of the program. Cathy Janovitz, Escondido Public Library’s Teen Librarian commented, “Burritos and Book Club encourages reading and provides a forum for teens to relate their opinions, feelings, and insights about the stories. It’s a casual environment where they can feel comfortable about sharing their views about any topic that interests them.”

This program is generously sponsored by Friends of the Escondido Pubic Library and Taco Bell located at 627 N. Escondido Boulevard in Escondido, CA. Library programs, events, and services are free and open to the public. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street in Escondido, California.
