Latino Book Club

Latino Book ClubLatino Book Club, started in January 2008 is my attempt to familiarize Wilmington with the varied experiences of the different Latino groups in the United States, through its literature.


Latino Book Club meets every last Saturday of the month at Pomegranate Books, an independent local book store located on the corner of Park and Kerr Avenue. We alternate between book discussions and book readings. Updated information is always available on our facebook site.
