At our upcoming meeting, we’ll discuss The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea. “All we do, mija, is love. Love is the answer. Nothing stops it. Not borders. Not death.” Confronting the harsh realities of the Mexican American immigrant experience, this book presents a thoughtful and honest portrayal of one family’s quest for a better life, and the things that are lost along the way.
Book for March 5: The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics by Daniel James Brown. The #1 New York Times–bestselling story about American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany and now the inspiration for the PBS documentary “The Boys of ‘36.”
