September 21, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us on the third Thursday of every month to find out if the book really is better than the movie. Each month we will read a book and then come together to watch the movie adaptation and discuss our thoughts. Pizza will be served, so make sure to register so we know how much to order!

This month we will be reading and watching: Bless Me Ultima

The book is available at the library for pickup. It is also available online as a hoopla audiobook which can be accessed with your library card. 

Register here!

Please note that registration opens 30 days prior to the event.

About the Book

From “one of the nation’s foremost Chicano literary artists” comes a coming-of-age classic and the bestselling Chicano novel of all time that follows a young boy as he questions his faith and beliefs — now one of PBS’s “100 Great American Reads” (Denver Post)

Antonio Marez is six years old when Ultima comes to stay with his family in New Mexico. She is a curandera, one who cures with herbs and magic. Under her wise wing, Tony will probe the family ties that bind and rend him, and he will discover himself in the magical secrets of the pagan past—a mythic legacy as palpable as the Catholicism of Latin America. And at each life turn there is Ultima, who delivered Tony into the world… and will nurture the birth of his soul.
