Escondido Public Library’s bilingual book discussion group, Rincón Literario (The Literary Corner) meets on Saturday, April 28th from 3:30 – 4:45 PM in the library’s Board Room. The Escondido Public Library is located in downtown Escondido at 239 South Kalmia Street. The selected book is Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel, Nunca me abandones/Never Let Me Go.
Rincón Literario meets regularly, the last Saturday of each month to explore literature published in English and Spanish. The discussions are a perfect way to discuss interesting books and converse in both languages.
From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day comes a devastating novel of innocence, knowledge, and loss. As children Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school secluded in the English countryside. It was a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules where teachers were constantly reminding their charges of how special they were.
Years later, Kathy is a young woman. Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life. And for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special–and how that shapes the rest of their time together. Suspenseful, moving, beautifully atmospheric, Nunca me abandones/Never Let Me Go is a classic that examines a perplexing modern social and moral dilemma.
In May, Rincón Literario readers will discuss Harry Potter y la piedra filosofal/Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. A list of future Rincón Literario selections is available at the library website.

Rincón Literario is made possible by generous support from the Friends of the Escondido Public Library. This program is free and open to the public.
