July (2ND DATE) -World Book #7 - Into the Beautiful North, by Luis Alberto Urrea


In our next stop on our world travels, we head to Mexico for a tale from one of Mexico's most prolific modern writers.


Nineteen-year-old Nayeli works at a taco shop in her Mexican village and dreams about her father, who journeyed to the US to find work. Recently, it has dawned on her that he isn't the only man who has left town. In fact, there are almost no men in the village--they've all gone north. While watching The Magnificent Seven, Nayeli decides to go north herself and recruit seven men--her own "Siete Magníficos"--to repopulate her hometown and protect it from the bandidos who plan on taking it over. 

Filled with unforgettable characters and prose as radiant as the Sinaloan sun, INTO THE BEAUTIFUL NORTH is the story of an irresistible young woman's quest to find herself on both sides of the fence.

    I have been waiting since 10 AM for the AC guy to get here. Hopefully, he will be here in time for me to get to the book club.

    Hey everyone! I got coupons for Fridays in the mail this week for 20% off the entire table's purchase. Tax and gratuity aren't included but still a good deal! I'll bring mine to the Wednesday group, but is there a way I can get one to somebody for the Monday group so they're not left out? Two of the coupons are good thru July 14th and there's two more coupons from July 15th-August 19th.

      I got a 20% off coupon to use on Monday, so if you don't mind bringing yours to the Wednesday meetup, everyone can share in the fun. Thanks!

      Sure! I'll bring the August ones as well in case we don't go to a Japanese restaurant.

    Hello attendees - I know there had been some discussion about having the book club meetup at a Mexican restaurant. Unfortunately, none of the local Mexican places are able to accommodate our group. As such, the meetup will be at TGI Fridays as usual. Thanks!

    Hello! I just joined the book club. I would like to attend the 7/10 meet up and hope it is still open. Please advise if there is anything I should know, since the meet-ups take place in a restaurant. Thank you! Abby
