SummaryJoin us for the 2018 Arts Gumbo Book Chats at the Columbia Branch. Everyone is welcome. This month’s title is "Caramelo" by Sandra Cisneros.
Book DescriptionEach summer, Celaya and her family return to her grandmother's home in Mexico City. At the house, Celaya meets Candelaria, the maid's daughter, who she secretly admires for her beauty. Here we also meet other members of her family, including the Awful Grandmother, Aunty Light-Skin, and the Little Grandfather. We learn about their stories. "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.
