Event Details

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we’ll be reading Rain of Gold by Victor Villaseñor. Villaseñor, a writer of Mexican-American heritage, tells the engrossing saga of his family’s immigration to, and subsequent life in, California in the wake of the Mexican revolution. The book focuses on three generations as they struggle with poverty and prejudice, love and life. From beginning to end, the chronicle is filled with one remarkable story after another. All have the simple warmhearted quality of family tales told around the kitchen table, yet all are eminently believable. Many episodes have to do with overcoming hardships. A fast-paced tale with a simple, fable-like quality that’s often surprisingly moving.
New book club members are always welcome! Titles are available at the Information Desk.
For adults.
