One Book One Bronx - Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa LIVE! Join Us!


Dahlam Llanos-Figueroa on Zoom

Join us on Wednesday, May 6, 7pm, when we welcome award-winning novelist Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa to the Casita Maria Book Club on Zoom. We'll discuss the wonderfully crafted lives of the five courageous women featured in Daughters of the Stone. Dahlma will answer questions and discuss her process as a writer. We invite everyone who has loved the daughters' journies from Africa to NYC, from slavery to freedom to join the conversation.

“Rejoice! Here is a novel you have never read before: the story of a long line of extraordinary Afro-Puerto Rican women silenced by history. In Daughters of the Stone, Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa rescues them from oblivion and richly, compellingly, magically introduces them to literature— and to the world. ¡Bienvenidas!” --Cristina Garcia, author of Dreaming In Cuban.

Next Book

Join us beginning May 12, when One Book One 
Bronx explores ALL ABOUT LOVE: NEW VISIONS, bell hooks's love songs to a nation.
“The word ‘love’ is most often defined as a noun, yet... we would all love better if we used it as a verb,” writes bell hooks as she comes out fighting and on fire in All About Love. Here, at her most provocative and intensely personal, bell hooks (renowned scholar, cultural critic, and feminist) skewers our view of love as romance. In its place she offers a proactive new ethic for a people and a society bereft with lovelessness.
