Adult Summer Book Club: The Great Divide by Cristina Henríquez

Adult Summer Book Club: The Great Divide by Cristina Henríquez

A summer book club for adults who want to read in community. We'll meet one Friday morning a month to chat about a title we read in common.

Our July pick is:

The Great Divide
by Cristina Henríquez (2024)

A powerful novel about the construction of the Panama Canal, casting light on the unsung people who lived, loved, and labored there. ... Searing and empathetic, The Great Divide explores the intersecting lives of activists, fishmongers, laborers, journalists, neighbors, doctors, and soothsayers—those rarely acknowledged by history even as they carved out its course. -Publisher

Though carrying heavy historical cargo, Henríquez's tale is beguiling and bright with love, humor, and magic.  -Booklist

Copies will be available at the circulation desk.
