Pageturners Book Discussion Group will be joining the rest of the world talking about the most controversial book on the planet – American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins – at the next meeting on Wednesday 11th March at Orange City Library at 5.30pm.
It is the unforgettable story of a mother and son fleeing a drug-cartel to cross the US-Mexico border.
Yesterday, Lydia had a bookshop.
Yesterday, Lydia was married to a journalist.
Yesterday, she was with everyone she loved most in the world.
Today, her eight-year-old son Luca is all she has left.
For him, she will carry a machete strapped to her leg.
For him, she will leap onto the roof of a high speed train.
For him, she will find the strength to keep running.
