Stanley Reads continues this fall with Luis Alberto Urrea’s National Best Seller The House of Broken Angels (2018).

The novel follows the De La Cruz family across two days and through life and death: the matriarch’s funeral and the patriarch’s birthday celebration. Urrea weaves a tale of family mythology, promises, and betrayals that took the De La Cruzes from La Paz, Mexico to San Diego, California. Derek Nnuro, associate curator of special projects, and Amanda Lensing, Senior Living Communities program coordinator, will lead participants through a discussion of the book and connect its themes to the Stanley’s collection.
