We continue with the Reading Club meetings to analyze and discuss different works of North American literature, in a new format and with a new facilitator.
After a prior individualized reading, the works will be discussed in a group on the day of the meeting. we have Maria Willstedt as a moderator who will make a brief introduction, ask questions and animate the conversation.
For the month of September we will focus on the story "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes.
It is available online at Spanish but you can also read in any of the editions published on paper.
“Charlie Gordon, a boy with a mental disability, tells in his diary, with words similar to those of a child who begins to write, the difficulties he encounters on a daily basis. Suddenly, some scientists see the possibility of operating on him to make him a person like the others. They also did it with Algernon, a lab mouse, and it worked. But, some time later, the little mouse begins to experience changes in behavior, until it falls into a clear regression and dies. Charlie, who watches it every day, knows what that means."
