Freedom Readers Book Club May Meeting

Please join us on May 20th at 5:30 PM for the Freedom Readers Book Club meeting. The May selection is The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea.

"In his final days, beloved and ailing patriarch Miguel Angel de La Cruz, affectionately called Big Angel, has summoned his entire clan for one last legendary birthday party. But as the party approaches, his mother, nearly one hundred, dies herself, leading to a farewell doubleheader in a single weekend. Among the guests is Big Angel's half brother, known as Little Angel, who must reckon with the truth that although he shares a father with his siblings, he has not, as a half gringo, shared a life"
