With all that has been happening, I almost forgot that this Saturday is the fourth in a series of book discussions on the topics of love and forgiveness in literature. This month the book under discussion is The Guardians by Ana Castillo, a novel that deals with illegal immigration, small-town life in New Mexico, and the search for one’s place in the world – told through four different first-person narrators.
The discussion series is funded by the American Library Association and the Fetzer Institute’s Campaign for Love and Forgiveness, with local support from the Santee Chamber of Commerce, the Santee Community Collaborative, and the Friends of the Santee Library. The session begins at 10:30 am and will be led by Dr. Martha Stoddard-Holmes, Associate Professor of Literature and Writing Studies at Cal State San Marcos.
The final discussion will be on Saturday, May 9 on Bel Canto by Ann Patchett.
