BOOK CLUBS: You may want to consider putting the book on your schedule in January, February or March.

Thanks to the thoughtful work of the CNY READS members,

    Tortilla Curtain

by T.C. Boyle has been chosen as the 2013 selection. It was felt that the book’s themes will offer excellent opportunities for discussion and programming, and that the book speaks to current issues of importance to Central New York and the United States (and the world).

Description:
“America and Candido are homeless illegal immigrants who struggle from day to day to survive. Kyra and Delaney, a pair of environmentalists, live in an affluent community that’s building a wall to keep the criminal illegals out. This is the story of two California couples whose lives intersect while remaining worlds apart.”
