The Colorado State Library’s Book Club Resource is excited to announce the addition of five Spanish language titles to our book club catalog as one of many steps in our continued effort to best represent and serve the diverse and ever-changing population of our Colorado community! Our new titles include works from celebrated authors such as Julia Alvarez, Sandra Cisneros, Fernando Vallejo, and Yuri Herrera. Cisneros’s La Casa en Mango Street was the recipient of the American Book Award, Vallejo’s El Desbarrancadero won the 2003 Romulo Gallegos International Prize, and Alvarez made waves with En el Tiempo de las Mariposas when the English adaptation was nominated for the 1994 National Book Critics Circle Award, but was also banned by a New York school district.
If all that isn’t exciting enough, we have 15 copies of each title, so now you can welcome more people than ever to your book club or reading group! The process for borrowing is just as easy as ever and you can still check out multiple titles at a time. So if you are already registered with the State Library’s Book Club Resource, head over to our catalog and browse our new Spanish language titles!
