Join us Friday, April 7, at 9 am, as we talk about Pulitzer-winning The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz. Oscar, a sweet, overweight New Jersey ghetto nerd, blames the fukú (a family curse) for keeping him from his dreams of being a writer and falling in love. While providing an insight into Dominican-American history, this book explores the endless human capacity to persevere—and risk it all—in the name of love. (Condensed from the Amazon.com description). Whether you’ve read the book or not, please join us for conversation and treats! Have a book you’d like to discuss? We’ll be taking suggestions for our next title at the April meeting, so bring your ideas for future book choices. We meet in the Maverick Room.
