Start off your weekend with other bookish folks at a Fresh City Life My Branch event!
The Smiley Branch invites you to join the new Las Comadres and Friends National Latino Book Club! We will be meeting the 4th Saturday of each month at 1 p.m. starting this Saturday, May 25. Membership is open to every book lover interested in reading English-language works written by Latina and Latino authors. For more information go to: http://www.lascomadres.org under the Subscribe and Events tabs click on Book Club sign up and view the selected books for upcoming months. May's selection is Rebozos by Carmen Tafolla. June's selection is The Five Acts of Diego Leon by Alex Espinoza. The website also has other great features, like videos from authors and opportunities to teleconference with them!
Your other book option on Saturday is to meet local author Wayne Omura, who will be talking about his latest book, Zen Foot-Notes: Upon the Unknown Passage, a "metaphysical-mystical mountain climbing adventure symbolic of our journey through life." 3 p.m. at the Bear Valley Branch.
