Bilingual Book Discussion Group Meets at Escondido Library

Escondido, CA - Rincón Literario (The Literary Corner), Escondido Public Library’s bilingual book discussion group, will meet on Saturday, August 31st 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. Un paseo para recordar / A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks is the selected book for August.

Sure to wring yet more tears from willing readers’ eyes, this forced coming–of-age story by bestselling author, Nicholas Sparks, is sure to do just that.  Every April when the wind smells of both the sea and lilacs, Landon Carter remembers 1958, his last year at Beaufort High.  Landon had dated a girl or two, and even once had sworn he’d been in love.  Certainly, the last person he thought he’d fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the shy, almost ethereal daughter of the town’s Baptist minister.  Against his best intentions, Landon finds himself falling for Jamie, this girl who is destined to show him the depths of the human heart – and the joy and pain of living.

Adult Services Librarian Paul Crouthamel said, “When you discuss a great book with others who have read it, you can share your perspectives and learn how other people might interpret the story differently.  The discussions are a perfect way to learn about interesting books and converse in both languages”.

Rincón Literario meets regularly on the last Saturday of each month to explore literature published in English and Spanish. In September, Rincon Literario readers will discuss La ladrona de libros / The Book Thief  by Markus Zusak. .

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.
