The Bookstore Plus Presents
Book Club Discussion with Ann Dávila Cardinal
Tuesday November 7, 7 – 8 pm
Ann Dávila Cardinal will be joining us IN THE STORE to discuss her book, The Storyteller’s Death. Join us in the children’s section of the store OR email email@example.com for the Zoom link.
ABOUT THE BOOK| There was always an old woman dying in the back room of her family’s house when Isla was a child…
Isla Larsen Sanchez’s life begins to unravel when her father passes away. Instead of being comforted at home in New Jersey, her mother starts leaving her in Puerto Rico with her grandmother and great-aunt each summer like a piece of forgotten luggage.
When Isla turns eighteen, her grandmother, a great storyteller, dies. It is then that Isla discovers she has a gift passed down through her family’s cuentistas. The tales of dead family storytellers are brought back to life, replaying themselves over and over in front of her.
At first, Isla is enchanted by this connection to the Sanchez cuentistas. But when Isla has a vision of an old murder mystery, she realizes that if she can’t solve it to make the loop end, these seemingly harmless stories could cost Isla her life.
