The Denver Network of Las Comadres & Friends National Latino Book Club hosts a book club meeting to discuss Rodrigo Hasbun’s “Affections — A Novel” on Saturday, Aug. 26, 1 to 3 p.m., at the Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch Library, located at 1498 N. Irving St., Denver.

Hasbun’s haunting novel is about an unusual family’s breakdown—set in South America during the time of Che Guevara and inspired by the life of Third Reich cinematographer Hans Ertl.

In addition, the group will converse about “The Enchilada Queen Cookbook” by Sylvia Casares.

The event takes place on Floor 2 in the Eugene Lucero Room.
