Lovers of literature at the American Society (Amsoc) are meeting on the third Thursday of each month (usually) to discuss books and “have a barrel of fun,” says member Marcia Gran.
Books chosen for discussion at the Amsoc Book Club cover a variety of genres, from current works and bestsellers, to classics and tomes on Mexico and Mexican history.The meetings are held at 10 a.m., prior to the regular Amsoc Thursday luncheon. A film showing is offered after the meal at 2 p.m.
Everyone is welcome to attend the club’s meetings, and organizers stress that there is no obligation to read the chosen volume beforehand, although it makes for a more entertaining discussion if everyone does.
April’s discussion will be on “In the Shadow of the Angel” by Kathryn Blair, described as Mexico’s “Gone With the Wind,” a novel based on the life of an extraordinary Mexican woman in the first three decades of the 20th century.
