The Reading Club meeting cycle will discuss books from March to June that talk about migration and refuge. On June 13 will be the book “O Xará” by Jhumpa Lahiri, a writer born in 1967 in England and raised in the United States, the daughter of parents of Indian origin. The protagonist of the book, Gogol, feels lost between two cultures: the United States, where he was born and lives, and the one who came from India and in the hearts of his parents, immigrants in search of opportunities in American territory. The novel follows the Ganguli family on their constant journeys, physical or spiritual, between traditions and customs, between India and the United States, between the past and the present.

When I die, I’ll tell God everything.
A play based on a true story that tells the adventures of Abou, an African boy who was found inside a suitcase, trying to enter the European continent. To the sound of drums and guitar, four narrator-actors tell the story of these refugees who, along with their suitcase Ilê – companion, shelter and pet – faced difficulties with creativity, imagination and courage. This is a presentation of the Collective The Bonde.
