Ladyboss Book Club: An Undercurrent of Magic

Date : January 4, 2022
Time : 6-7:30 PM
Location :


When magical elements are seamlessly involved in stories and perceived as the norm, it is known as magical realism mostly used in Latin-American narratives. These picks reflect more modern Latinx and Afro-Latinx writers and characters than the classics like One Hundred Years of Solitude and Like Water for Chocolate.

This month’s picks include:

  1. The Inheritance of Orquidea Divina by Zoraida Cordova 
  2. So Far From God by Ana Castillo 
  3. Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia (noir)
  4. Voodoo Dreams by Jewell Parker Rhodes
  5. The Murmur of Bees by Sofia Segovia
