On November 15th, members of Café Literario participated in a Zoom visit and Q&A with Jeanine Cummins, bestselling author of American Dirt, the fall 2021 book selection.
After explaining the process of writing and publishing her novel, Ms. Cummins answered questions submitted by the group's facilitator, Nancy Arroyo. It was a great opportunity for readers to hear directly from an author and a fitting end to a successful fall session.
Café Literario is a book club for JUSD parents coordinated by the Language Services Department. The group meets weekly to discuss a specific book, often selected by the parents themselves. Discussions happen primarily in Spanish, and members learn reading strategies taught in their own kids’ classrooms.
