Estamos de volta, queeruñxs!

Xa é un feito. Esprememos os últimos días do verán despedíndonos das cervexas no chiringuito, retomando rutinas case esquecidas e poñendo en marcha aqueles “propósitos de emenda” persoal que xurdiron durante as vacacións. E aínda non sabes se apuntarte a crossfit, estudar chinés ou tomar clases de cociña tailandesa, que sona ben cool. Pois ben, se o teu plan de mellora persoal inclúe ademais ansias lectoras, nas Bibliotecas Municipais temos moito que propoñer. E coñecéndonos, de seguro que nuns meses xa non poderás abandonarnos.

Un curso máis, o club de lectura QUEERuña volve ás bibliotecas. O primeiro clube LGTBi de Galicia comeza o seu segundo ano de andaina coas mesmas ansias de diálogo e variedade de escenarios. Así, ás habituais sesións presenciais (que serán o terceiro mércores de cada mes ás 19 h na Biblioteca Ágora) sumaranse actividades extra, encontros con autores e quedadiñas varias (tamén para tomar cañas, eh, que non todo vai ser ler!). Un grupiño aberto a todas aquelas persoas interesadas en coñecer, conversar, analizar, descubrir… en desfrutar, resumindo, de materiais que procuran visibilidade e respecto ante a diversidade sexual e de xénero. Que por moito que digan, non hai nada mellor que a información para superar prexuízos.

Velaquí algunhas das lecturas analizadas durante o primeiro ano de vida do club, dispoñibles no Cascarilleiro, o catálogo en liña das Bibliotecas Municipais.

A curto prazo poderanse consultar no blog do club as lecturas para este novo curso, pero mentres, para xs máis curiosos, adiantamos a primeira lectura confirmada: Fun home, de Alison Bechdel.

Que?!? Non te vas a unir? O primeiro encontro is coming e quedan poucas prazas!! Preme aquí e ven a formar parte da familia queeruña!

Ágora’s Book Club.

Hi dear friends!

We are pleased to talk about the development of our English Book Club at the library of Agora.  Every Monday we meet in one of our classrooms from 6 to 7:15pm to make a review of our weekly reading from the books they are given the week before. We give our opinion on what we have read as well as answering the moderator’s questions.THE SENSE OF AN ENDING - BARNES

The first novel we read this course was The Sense of an Ending, by Julian Barnes. This surprising story deals with a group of former classmates whose past influence their future revealing their secrets and lies from their youth.

This is just a brief summary of the plot, but if you want to know more about this novel, you can check here.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD - HARPER LEEAfter Barnes’ novel, the Book Club approached one of the greatest classis of the North American literature. The 1961 Pulitzer Prize award To Kill a Mockinbird is a novel by the recently deceased Harper Lee. The novel deals with the story of Atticus Finch, an irreproachable honest lawyer who is devoted to fight against racism and social differences at the time in the context of the Deep South of the USA. You can find more information here.

Frozen Pizza and Other Slices of Life is the third book we have read this EIGHT SLICES OF LIFEÇcourse. The stories Antoniette Mosses shows in this book represent
eight slices of life in England today. The topics treated by Mosses go from food, leisure or the countryside to student life, migration or inner-city problems. These stories provide a fascinating picture of the country at the start of a new century. For more information, read this.

 

Finally, Nick Hornby’s well known High Fidelity is the book we are reading right now. As we will deal with this book in our next post, please feel free to know more of it hereHIGH FIDELITY-HORNBY

 

As reading and understanding is very important to increase our vocabulary, spelling and comprehension in order to enrich your knowledge of the language of Shakespeare. To sum up, we want to encourage you to join us to share some readings in English. No matter what level you are, you will find books in our library adapted to different levels.

Cheers.
