You can sign up now for a Spanish Book Discussion featuring “Enrique’s Journey” at the Teton County Public Library in Jackson. This book group will follow in the footsteps of a teen undertaking a hazardous journey to find his mother, who left him in Honduras to work in the United States.
Journalist Sonia Nazario’s “Enrique’s Journey: The Story of a Boy’s Dangerous Odyssey to Reunite with His Mother,” first appeared as a Pulitzer Prize-winning series in the Los Angeles Times. Nazario expanded the story, with additional research, to create a book, now being made into a dramatic series for television. Patricia Rocha, the library’s Latino Services Assistant, selected the book because it highlights challenges faced by some Latino families in Jackson.
Book group participants will meet in the library’s Ordway Auditorium from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 26 to discuss the book. The program is free and open to adults and teens, ages 15 and up, with books provided. Space is limited to 15 people; registration is required. To sign-up, stop by the library’s Information Desk or call Rocha at 733-2164 ext. 237.
