Welcome back to the Bookshare Book Club! Each month, Bookshare staff will choose a book for members to read before hosting a discussion near the end of the month. The conversation will take place through a Zoom webinar. While we have created this club with adult Bookshare members in mind, everyone is welcome to join, including non-Bookshare members.
September’s book will be Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. When Maite’s next door neighbor Leonora disappears, Maite jumps at the chance to live out her detective fantasies. Leonora’s life in 1970s Mexico City is filled with political protests and dissidence, and Maite’s investigation puts her in the crosshairs of some very powerful people. Even worse, she’s not the only one looking for Leonora.
The Zoom webinar discussion for Velvet Was the Night will take place on Thursday, September 30th at 5:00 pm PT.
