About The Book Club:

Welcome to The Poder Circle Book Club—a quarterly, themed book club that aims to spark and facilitate important discussion around our shared experiences, our unique stories, and the issues that affect our comunidad. As Poderistas, we want to show the world that libros by Latinxs matter—that our words have Poder. As people, we come from a long tradition of storytellers whose words have sparked movements. We honor that tradition by uplifting Latinx voices, deepening our understanding of the Latinx experience, facilitating discussion, and inspiring action through words with impact.

The fall theme of The Poder Circle Book Club is:

The Strength in our Latinidad

Latinidad encompasses the powerful diverse attributes shared by Latin American people and their descendants. Through carefully curated books, we’ll celebrate our cultura, ancestral origins and their relentless pursuit of a better tomorrow, for it is this heritage that fuels the strength of Poderistas like us today. Together, we’ll honor our Latinidad and the force it brings to our lives and communities.

We are thrilled to announce our fall selection, featuring a collection of writings spanning time, styles, and traditions that are the perfect celebration of cultura during our Heritage Month.

As we explore the theme of The Strength in our Latinidad, we can’t think of a better group of book to read together than:
