The Patricia Pownall UU Book Group will be meeting on Tuesday, November 10 at 7 pm in the home of Trish Kwartler. If you want to carpool, meet at the church at 6:30 pm. This month we are reading Into the Beautiful North by Luis Alberto Urrea. Nineteen-year-old Nayeli works at a taco shop in her Mexican village and dreams about her father, who journeyed to the US when she was young. Recently, it has dawned on her that he isn’t the only man who has left town. In fact, there are almost no men in the village–they’ve all gone north. While watching The Magnificent Seven, Nayeli decides to go north herself and recruit seven men–her own “Siete Magníficos”–to repopulate her hometown and protect it from the bandidos who plan on taking it over.
In December we will be reading TransAtlantic: a novel by Colum McCann. If you have any questions you may contact Bonnie Harper. All are welcome.
