Multicultural Affairs will host its second book club over J-Term for students. Students who choose to participate in book club will need to email Laura Kitoi, lkitoi@carthage.edu, to reserve a copy of the book (provided by Multicultural Affairs).

This year’s book is Into the Beautiful North by Luis Alberto Urrea. The novel follows the life of Nayeli who is living in a Mexican village where most men have left the village to travel to the United States. Nayeli travels north to bring back some of the men to the village so the village can flourish and be protected from local bandidos.

The book club will meet weekly throughout J-Term and participants will receive further information after emailing Laura Kitoi.
