Our book selection for February, Shanthi Sekaran's Lucky Boy starts with a difficult decision and an even more difficult journey.  Soliman Castro-Valdez sets off from Mexico on an optimistic road that soon finds her lost, pregnant and undocumented in a country she doesn't really understand. It is her son, Ignacio, who will cause two women both heartbreak and joy. The book and story are brilliant and tragic, but mostly very  Readable. Come and listen to author Sekaran speak with our own Donna Apidone on Tuesday, February 7. At 6pm in our Community Room. Make sure to get your tickets as this hometown girl will draw a big crowd. And the book's story is one you'll want to hear.
