Literati Library Book Club - Olga Dies Dreaming : by Xochitl Gonzalez

Kick off September with a new to you book and socialize with your fellow Lambertvillians. Books will be available to check out and refreshments will be provided during the meet. Check out a copy from Lambertville Library (online or in-house), borrow through ILL, or purchase your own.

"Liberation is at the heart of “Olga Dies Dreaming.” The story’s driving tension derives from questions of how to break free: from a mother’s manipulations, from shame, from pride indistinguishable from fear, from the traumatic burden of abandonment, from colonial oppression, from corrosive greed. The book’s title is an allusion to the poem “Puerto Rican Obituary,” by Pedro Pietri, which contains the lines “Olga / dies dreaming of a five dollar raise.” But Gonzalez’s Olga will not go meekly to such a fate. Sometimes we must free ourselves - even from dreams." -New York Times Review by Maggie Shipstead
