Storytelling around the book:

“That Book Woman” by Heather Henson & David Small

Friday, April 23rd at 18 h. – English version (All in English)

“Cal is not the readin’ type. Living way high up in the Appalachian Mountains, he’d rather help Pap plow or go out after wandering sheep than try some book learning. Nope. Cal does not want to sit stoney-still reading some chicken scratch. But that Book Woman keeps coming just the same. She comes in the rain. She comes in the snow. She comes right up the side of the mountain, and Cal knows that’s not easy riding. And all just to lend his sister some books. Why, that woman must be plain foolish — or is she braver than he ever thought?.”

From Simon and Schuster.

February 2010 storytelling around the book:

“Stone soup” by Jon J. Muth

Saturday February 27th

At 11 a.m. – English Version (All in English)

At 12:30 p.m – Bilingual Version (In English, using some Spanish to help understand)

“This rich story tells the story of Hok, Lok, and Siew–three monks traveling along a mountain road. The youngest monk, Hok (named after the Chinese deity symbolizing good fortune and prosperity), asks the question, “What makes one happy?”, and finds an answer in a little village filled with people who have lost faith and trust in each other. Villagers kept to themselves and would not greet the three traveling strangers. Siew, the older and wiser monk, decides it is time to make “stone soup”. This seemingly odd enterprise at first piques the villagers’ curiosity, and it isn’t long before the monks’ modest suggestions for additions to the soup (salt and pepper, carrots, and so forth) stimulate a whole village to share in the making of the soup, and enjoy a feast after the rich soup is made. And so it came to be that “as each person opened their heart to give, the next person gave even more”.”

Lectura para el mes de enero en el Círculo Literario

Participa con la lectura del libro recomendado y con el coloquio del último jueves de cada mes dirigido por Soledad Fox.

Entrada libre y gratuita previa inscripción en biblioteca@iie.es

Libro del mes: “Constancia de la Mora” por Soledad Fox

COLOQUIO: pospuesto del  jueves 28 de enero al 4 de febrero, a las 19:30 h.

“Constancia de la Mora es una de las figuras españolas más paradójicas y enigmáticas de los años treinta. Nacida en un entorno privilegiado y conservador, destinada a casarse bien, tener hijos y formar parte de la élite de la “vieja España”, rompió con los cánones de la época al convertirse en una Republicana militante, divorciarse, y enviar a su única hija a la Unión Soviética. Apasionada defensora de la democracia española, se convirtió en una de las propagandistas más importantes de la causa republicana. Su labor la llevaría de Madrid al Kremlin, y de la Casa Blanca al exilio en México; y a firmar unas memorias, In Place of Splendor, publicadas en Nueva York que la convertirían en una figura célebre a nivel internacional.”
