The Denver Network of Las Comadres & Friends National Latino Book Club invites you to a book club meeting on Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 1:00pm at Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch Library in the Eugene Lucero Meeting Room, 1498 N. Irving Street at W. Colfax Ave., Denver, 80204. The May 2017 book of the month to be discussed is Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.
“Certain Dark Things combines elements of Latin American mythology with a literary voice that leads readers on an exhilarating and fast-paced journey. Welcome to Mexico City, an oasis in a sea of vampires. Here in the city, heavily policed to keep the creatures of the night at bay, Domingo is another trash-picking street kid, just hoping to make enough to survive. Then he meets Atl, the descendant of Aztec blood drinkers. Domingo is smitten. He clings to her like a barnacle until Atl relents and decides to let him stick around. But Atl’s problems, Nick and Rodrigo, have come to find her. When they start to raise the body count in the city, it attracts the attention of police officers, local crime bosses, and the vampire community. Atl has to get out before Mexico City is upended, and her with it.
Author Teleconference will be May 22nd at 6pm Mountain Time. Another email will be sent out when registration is posted to join the May Teleconference.
You may order your books from your local book store, online or request them from the Denver Public Library or a library in another county if the wait is too long. The Denver Public Library has 7 copies of the the May book!
