This month's book is "Lacuna" by Barbara Kingsolver

The Lacuna is the heartbreaking story of a man torn between the warm heart of Mexico and the cold embrace of Protected content America in the shadow of Senator McCarthy. Born in America and raised in Mexico, Harrison Shepherd is a liability to his social-climbing flapper mother, Salome. When he starts work in the household of Mexican artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo - where the Bolshevik leader, Lev Trotsky, is also being harboured as a political exile - he inadvertently casts his lot with art, communism and revolution.

Feel free to come even if you haven't finished the book. Everyone is welcome.

Regards,
