Circulo de Lectura “La Criolla” / Book Club – Book Talk

March 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


El Círculo de Lectura “La Criolla” tiene el placer de extender una cordial invitación a todos los amantes de la lectura. Nos emociona invitarlos a participar en nuestra próxima aventura literaria, donde exploraremos juntos las páginas cautivadoras del libro “Que Vergüenza” por Paulina Flores.

Ella nos lleva de paseo por la vida citadina en su primer libro con nueve relatos. Descubre la cotidianidad en edificios, revela los cimientos frágiles tras la pérdida de empleo, y nos sumerge en el mundo de jóvenes que trabajan en bibliotecas o comida rápida, recordando momentos que marcaron sus vidas. Con su mezcla única de crudeza y ternura, Flores teje historias que se pegan a la piel, revelando un universo literario deslumbrante lleno de personajes que parecen conocidos de siempre.

¡Una lectura que no querrás perderte!

Se servirán refrigerios ligeros
