In February, thanks to your help, we purchased 650 copies of Juan Villoro's book, El Libro Salvaje. This is the story of a young boy who is forced to spend his summer vacation with his uncle. Expecting a summer of boredom, he is surprised to discover a magical library and ends up having a summer of adventure and developing a passion for books. Juan Villoro is one of Mexico's most prolific and celebrated contemporary authors and El Libro Salvaje is a book for all ages. If you are interested in reading this book (in Spanish), please message us.
Due to the global pandemic, this year's Big Read event will be online. Although there are disadvantages to an online event, the advantage is that people in different geographic areas can also take part. Please email us at email@example.com if you are interested in attending the May 28 session with Juan Villoro.
It is believed that school will resume in August and the our second Big Read of 2021 may be in person. We shall see! If there is one thing we've learned in 2020, it's to be flexible and adapt :-)
