Spanish Language Book Group at the Springfield Library

The Springfield Public Library offers a monthly Spanish Language Book Group. Pick up a copy of the book now and attend from 3-5 p.m., Saturday, November 16 to discuss “El libro secreto de Frida Kahlo” by one of Mexico’s most celebrated new novelists, F.G. Haghenbeck. Haghenbeck was inspired to write this fictional account of Kahlo’s life after the recent discovery of unpublished notebooks of the artist. This novel explores one notebook, imagined by Haghenbeck to be “The Sacred Herbs Book,” as a way to revisit the extraordinary artist’s life through the Day of the Dead recipes, memories and insights the notebook contains.

This book group is open to the public and free book group copies of the book can be borrowed by participants who preregister at the library. The group will meet two times to discuss Haghenbeck’s book: November 16 and December 14, 2019. Preregistration is suggested, but not required. To preregister, or for any questions, visit the library or call 541.726.3766.This program is made possible by a generous sponsorship from Joan Gray and Harris Hoffman.
