SummaryJoin us for the 2018 Arts Gumbo Book Chats at the Columbia Branch. Everyone is welcome. This month’s title is "Brownsville: Stories" by Oscar Casares.
Book DescriptionAt the country's edge, on the Mexican border, Brownsville, Texas, is a town like many others. It is a place where people work hard to create better lives for their children, where people bear grudges against their neighbors, where love blossoms only to fade, and where the only real certainty is that life holds surprises. "The Arts Gumbo Book Chats" book group will read and discuss books about Mexican immigrant experiences in October and November. The discussions are part of the 2018 Arts Gumbo Event held in the Rainier Arts Center in Columbia City.
