Reading and Discussion Program of Mexican Literature

Starting in August, the Upton Branch Library will host "Distant Neighbors", a reading and discussion series in the Wyoming Humanities Council's Reading Wyoming program. The first discussion meeting will take place on Thursday, August 19 at 7:00 p.m. in the library meeting room.

To register for this program and borrow books, just stop by the Upton Branch Library.

The first book to be discussed is Laura Esquivel's "Like Water for Chocolate". The book is ready to be picked up, so you have time to read it before the meeting.

There are three other titles in this "Distant Neighbor" series and the other meetings will take place on September 16, October 21 and November 18. The remaining titles in the series include, "Tula Station" by David Toscana, "The Nine Guardians" by Rosario Castellanos, and "The Underdogs" by Mariano Azuela.

Betty Strong returns to lead the discussions. Please call or stop by the library for more information.
