Wine and Word Book Discussion

Join us for a glass of wine or a nonalcoholic beverage and lively conversation as we discuss Luis Alberto Urrea’s 2009 book, Into the Beautiful North.

Nineteen-year-old Nayeli works at a taco shop in her Mexican village and dreams about her father, who journeyed to the US when she was young. Recently, it has dawned on her that he isn't the only man who has left town. In fact, there are almost no men in the village—they’ve all gone north.

While watching The Magnificent Seven, Nayeli decides to go north herself and recruit seven men—her own “Siete Magníficos”—to repopulate her hometown and protect it from the bandidos who plan on taking it over.
