Non-Fiction Book Discussion

October 5th, 2017, 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Join us to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by discussing Enrique's Journey / La Travesia de Enrique by Sonia Nazario.
Enrique’s Journey recounts the unforgettable [real life] quest of a Honduran boy looking for his mother, eleven years after she is forced to leave her starving family to find work in the United States. Braving unimaginable peril, often clinging to the sides and tops of freight trains, Enrique travels through hostile worlds full of thugs, bandits, and corrupt cops. But he pushes forward, relying on his wit, courage, hope, and the kindness of strangers.

La travesía de Enrique es la inolvidable historia de un niño hondureño que se lanza en busca de su madre, once años después de que ella se vio forzada a dejar atrás a su familia hambrienta para buscar trabajo en los Estados Unidos. Enrique atraviesa parajes hostiles llenos de malhechores, forajidos y policías corruptos. Pero avanza a fuerza de ingenio, coraje, esperanza—y también gracias a la bondad de los desconocidos.
