Book discussion of Fruit of the Drunken Tree by Ingrid Rojas Contreras

Community Room
Wednesday, Oct 16, 6:00pm to 7:30pm

A coming-of-age story set in Bogota during Pablo Escobar's reign that focuses on the relationship between a little girl and her mostly-silent maid, Petrona. Rojas Contreras' lovely, spare prose alternates between both girls, and in the process tells a complex story about class, violence, and living in turbulent times.
