Escondido Public Library’s bilingual book discussion group, Rincón Literario (The Literary Corner) meets on Saturday, May 26th 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 J.K. Rowling’s remarkable literary sensation Harry Potter y la piedra filosofal / Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This is the first book in the Harry Potter series.
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.
Dive into the sensational world of Harry Potter and see that he has no idea how famous he is. That's because he's being raised by his miserable aunt and uncle who are terrified Harry will learn that he's really a wizard, just as his parents were. But everything changes when Harry is summoned to attend an infamous school for wizards, and he begins to discover some clues about his illustrious birthright. From the surprising way he is greeted by a lovable giant, to the unique curriculum and colorful faculty at his unusual school, Harry finds himself drawn deep inside a mystical world he never knew existed and closer to his own noble destiny.
In June, Rincón Literario readers will discuss El tiempo entre costuras / The Time in Between by Maria Duenas. A list of future Rincón Literario selections is available on the library website.
