About the Event

Do you like to read? Come join the discussion led by Erin Dagenais, Community Engagement & Reference Librarian with the Winchester Public Library. This month’s read is American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins. Lydia Pérez lives a comfortable life in Acapulco, Mexico, with her journalist husband, Sebastián, and her eight-year-old son, Luca. Lydia runs a bookstore and one day befriends a charming customer, Javier, who appears to have similar interests in books. However, Javier is revealed to be the kingpin of a drug cartel. Sebastián publishes a profile exposing Javier's crimes, who then orders the slaughter of Sebastián and his family. Lydia and Luca escape the massacre, and flee Mexico, becoming two of the countless undocumented immigrants who undertake the dangerous journey to the United States. Discussion will include interesting details about the author, the setting, and the story. All welcome! Register to obtain the Zoom link.
