A Novel Idea Book Discussion: American DirtWednesday April 28, 2021
American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins
Lydia Quixano Pérez runs a bookstore in Acapulco, Mexico, where she lives with her husband, Sebastián, who is a journalist, and their son, Luca. But her life will soon be turned upside down as she and her son have to flee Acapulco, setting them on a journey they will share with countless other Central and South Americans-turned migrants. The much anticipated publication of this book sparked controversy, criticism and praise.
