Vamos a Leer Book Club
Bookworks, Monday, March 2 at 5pm
The Vamos a Leer book group began in February 2012. Every month, educators, teachers, librarians, and community members from all over Albuquerque come together at our wonderful local bookstore.

The book group is held on the first Monday of each month (with a few exceptions due to holidays) during the academic year. We meet at Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande Blvd NW Albuquerque, NM 87107 | 505.344.8139) from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. If you can’t find us at Bookworks, it’s because we’ve wandered right next door to the Flying Star to indulge in coffee and pastries.

Feel free to drop in for any of our meetings! No need to have read the entire book or even a chapter…we welcome conversation about a single page, the book’s theme or setting, your classroom endeavors, and whatever other related musings you care to share.

Below is information concerning our upcoming and recent meetings. Note that all of these books have been highlighted in blog posts and have Educator’s Guides to support their use in the classroom, so be sure to check out the rest of the blog for more information.

This month's selection is He Forgot to Say Goodbye by Benjamin Alire Saenz.

Location: Street: 4022 Rio Grande Blvd NW City: Albuquerque, Province: New Mexico Postal Code: 87107-3157 Country: United States (added from IndieBound)
