The Tortilla Curtain by T. C. Boyle

Date and Time: October 12, 2020, 7:00 PM CT

Location: Leavenworth Public Library, 417 Spruce St, Leavenworth
(view on google maps)

From the TALK series, Between Fences
Discussion Leader: Gene Chávez

Boyle juxtaposes two Los Angeles couple's lives: one of privilege; the other of illegal immigration. Boyle's plot brings the two families into tragic collision, exposing issues of class divides, problems of illegal Mexican immigration, and environmental degradation. As the United States builds hundreds of miles of fence along the Mexican border, his novel has never been timelier.
