June Book Club

Thanks to everyone who joined us last week for our book club discussion!  We wanted to provide everyone with the information for our June meeting and hope that you can join us for the discussion.   


Here is the information for the next book club meeting:  

Book choice: Purgatory by Tomas Eloy Martinez
Date: Tuesday, June 11th
Time: 15h30 -17h30
Location: Las Canitas
Please email your RSVP to: anetworks1@gmail.com

(She will send you the exact address)

For those interested in learning more about the book we will be discussing, here is a brief summary and a link to the book description and reader reviews on Amazon.
 

Simón Cardoso had been dead for thirty years when Emilia Dupuy, his wife, found him at lunchtime in the dining room of Trudy Tuesday. So begins Purgatory, the final and perhaps most personal work of the great Latin American novelist Tomás Eloy Martínez. Emilia Dupuy’s husband vanished in the 1970s, while the two were mapping an Argentine country road. All evidence seemed to confirm that he was among the thousands disappeared by the military regime. Yet Emilia never stopped believing that the disappeared man would reappear. And then he does, in New Jersey. And for Simón, no time at all has passed. In Martínez’s hands, this love story and ghost story becomes a masterful allegory for history political and personal, and for a country’s inability to integrate its past with its present. http://www.amazon.com/Purgatory-Novel-Tomás-Eloy-Mart%C3%ADnez/dp/B00AKRPSRS

Hope to see you on June 11th!

Regards,
The Book Club Organizers

May Monthly Luncheon

Our May luncheon will be at a Peruvian restaurant that has only been open for two months and is delivering great food with reasonable pricing. 

The restaurant is conveniently located about one block away from the Tribunales Subte stop on the D line – close to the main court house. A favorite dish is the Seco de Cordero and the ceviche dishes are also very good. The menu is quite extensive so I am sure you will find something to your liking.

Upon arrival I will collect 25 pesos which pays for your cover charge, tip and non-alcoholic beverage. The balance can be given to me before you leave. 

Date: Thursday, May 30

Time: 12:30 pm

Cost: 25 pesos plus actual food and alcohol (if any) costs per menu.
