Rincón Literario (The Literary Corner), Escondido Public Library’s Bilingual Book Discussion Group, will meet on Saturday, August 29, from 3:30 – 4:45 p.m. in the Turrentine Room. Bajo la misma estrella/The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, is the selected title for August. Multiple copies of the book are available for check out or can be reserved in the Library catalog at library. escondido.org.
Bajo la misma estrella/The Fault in Our Stars is a best-selling novel and also a recent movie starring Shailene Woodley as Hazel Grace Lancaster. She is a young cancer patient trying to live a normal life while struggling with what it will be like for her parents after she dies. Hazel meets and falls in love with Augustus Waters, a participant in a support group. Their friendship develops as they courageously face their disease, while dealing with youthful aspirations and unexpected twists of fate.
Cecy Rayphole, Rincón Literario’s facilitator, commented, “Rincón Literatio brings readers together to share their views, experience different perspectives and discover what they have in common. Rincón Literario also provides a supportive setting where participants can practice or improve reading and speaking in either English or Spanish.”
Rincón Literario will meet next month, on Saturday, September 26 to discuss the delightful Esperanzarenace/ Esperanza Rising by Pam Muñoz Ryan.
