Our Third Meeting For The New Los Cuentos Summer Book Club with J.T. Takes Place Tonight

For the third week in a row our team reconnects to discuss our latest reflections on LA SIGUANABA and The Magical Loroco. Discussion items will include the way literature acts as a form of escapism, how popular culture might influence policy decisions, and the transactional nature of politics as seen in Ertll’s SIGUANABA. Follow JIMBO TIMES on Twitter for live updates from our chat.

Today Marks the Second Meeting for Our Los Cuentos Summer Book Club with J.T.

It’s true. Our second meeting for LA SIGUANABA and The Magical Loroco is taking place this evening at 6 PM. Our club will discuss the book’s consideration of Latinx-American history in the diaspora from places like Central America, issues of masculinity in Latinx-American culture, and the sometimes fraught, resentful relationships that transpire between families through these and more circumstances. It promises to be another meaningful evening over Zoom. Follow JIMBO TIMES on Twitter for live updates for the community’s reference.

Did you hear? Our first meeting for the first ever Los Cuentos Summer Book Club was Awesome

Our first meeting for the Los Cuentos Book Club this past Wednesday was a success, with 9 attendants, predominantly muxeres, from places like East & South Los Angeles, and even San Bernardino. Our discussion for LA SIGUANABA and The Magical Loroco was over an hour long, serving as an “online venue” for community engagement with literature made just for them.

Our club now just needs a small push or ‘jale’ to cover the cost of our books, which we’ve handed free of charge to each of our participants in an effort to be inclusive, and which we’ve purchased directly from the author in order to continue shopping from & supporting local artists in Los Angeles. As always, any donation or sharing the campaign with a friend will be of great support, and we can assure you to make it go a long, long way!

Our Book Club will hold its second meeting next Wednesday, July 22nd, and did you hear? Every supporter of our club is more than welcome to attend. To donate, you can find our fundraiser HERE.
