Spanish Book Club
The Spanish book club will focus on young adult novels written originally in Spanish by Spanish/Latino authors of our time. We will meet 2 times a month to discuss the book we are reading, talk about the author, style, and vocabulary, and practice tenses and moods used in the readings. This club is ideal for Spanish Language learners, 16 and older, that want to challenge themselves by reading a book (with no pictures in it) with a good storyline to learn and practice Spanish.
Sessions – Fall 2023 and Winter 2024
