We’re not looking back too far for this week’s virtual event replay. Patricia Engel’s Infinite Country is one of our favorite books this year and we want every to know about it!
Patricia Engel’s Infinite Country is one of our favorite books of the year so far. Not only did we select is as the first installment of our Trust Fall subscription service this year, it’s also the latest Reese’s Book Club pick, and we were so thrilled to have her join us earlier this week for a celebration of the book that has critics, authors, and our booksellers talking!
Marketing & Events Manager, Cristina L., has this to say about Infinite Country: “Patricia Engel has done it again and this time it feels more powerful than ever before. Infinite Country is a story that leaves no feeling behind and with just a few pages in writing tells the life-long journey of Mauro, Elena, Karina, Nando, and Talia, a family fighting at all odds to stay together. This book left me too quickly, but their story will stick with me forever.” Catch a replay of the conversation between Engel and Dominicana author, Angie Cruz!
