Escondido, CA - Rincón Literario (The Literary Corner), Escondido Public Library’s bilingual book discussion group, will meet on Saturday, April 26, 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.  The suspense thriller Perdida / Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is the selected book for April.

Nick’s wife Amy disappears on the day of their fifth wedding anniversary.  With signs of a struggle in the house, Nick quickly becomes the prime suspect.  As Amy’s case drags on, evidence mounts against Nick, though he maintains his innocence.  Under pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—Nick, the town golden boy, engages in an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior.  Nick is oddly evasive, but is he really a killer?  As the cops close in on Nick, every couple in town begins to wonder how well they know their loved ones.  And, if Nick didn’t do it, where is his beautiful wife?

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

Rincón Literario meets regularly on the last Saturday of the month to explore literature published in English and Spanish. In May, readers will discuss El castillo de cristal / The Glass Castle  by Jeannette Walls.  

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.
