Las Comrades & Friends National Latino Book Club

Tuesday May 16: 6:00PM 8:00PM

The first meeting of Las Comrades & Friends National Latino Book Club is here! They'll be sitting down and looking at Judith Ortiz Cofer's memoir.

Puerto Rican native Judith Ortiz Cofer's moving memoir documents her journey to her homeland after her mother's diagnosis of late-stage cancer. Her writing focuses on the dualities and contradictions in her life, from her demands in using both English and Spanish to traveling between the various cultures and her internal clash between being the grieving child and the responsible adult.

Powerful, intimate, and a clear look into the difficulties in both life and death, Cofer's work is haunting.

This event is free and open to the public. Copies of The Cruel Country will be available at the event.  Please note that payment is required for all online event orders at the time of checkout. The event will be located on the 2nd floor of Strand at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.
