You have been studying Spanish for some time and are getting quite comfortable carrying on conversations on a large variety of topics but perhaps you are ready for something a bit more challenging to continue to improve your vocabulary and solidify your knowledge of Spanish grammar – not to mention insight into hispanic cultures! Reading a book has not yet been part of your toolbox as both the task itself – not understanding everything, having to look up too many words — seems a bit daunting and the actual selection of a book, a discouraging process! But if someone chooses the book for you and holds your hand throughout the process by allowing you to tackle it in small digestible bites that you get to discuss once a week… you may be in for a pleasant and highly rewarding experience that will contribute to boost your confidence!
So if you are ready to move into the realm of unabridged literature, let the adventure begin!

You will be asked to read a little over 20 pages a week (at home) and once a week you will meet with your classmates and instructor for an hour of discussion, clarifications, explanations, etc. — in Spanish of course!

This class can be taken on its own or in combination with another class.

If you need assistance to determine if this class is right for you, we would be happy to help. Please SIGN UP TO ATTEND OUR ONLINE INFORMATIONAL MEETING on September 17th. It’s FREE! And if you can’t, please get in touch!

Resumen
Source: GoodReads

En este libro se nos cuenta cómo se había previsto para las mujeres casadas una plenitud circunscrita a lo familiar, feudo que proporciona un índice de pequeñas y extrañas satisfacciones. Pero bajo el dominio de marido, cocina, hijos y casa, sigue latiendo la singular y exclusiva personalidad de unas mujeres que, llegado el momento, reconocerán la señal reservada para cada una de ellas. Una se enamoró del mar y anduvo en su busca, otra parió en el hospital y abandonó al marido enamorado de la doctora, otra encontró a su antigua primer enamorado en la copa de un árbol…

Magistrales en su sencillez, estas pequeñas historias manifiestan la inteligencia expresiva de la autora y su sentido de la complicidad para entregarnos noticia de la insurgencia femenina. Virtuosas piezas narrativas que constituyen una de las muestras más personales e inventivas de la literatura escrita en español.
