Únase al Club de Lectura de la Biblioteca Central. Todos son bienvenidos. El libro de este mes es: Patrias: Cuatro amigos, dos países y el destino de la gran migración mexicana de Alfredo Corchado.

Cuando Alfredo Corchado se traslada a Filadelfia en 1987 como corresponsal de The Wall Street Journal, se sintió como si fuera el único mexicano en la ciudad. Pero en el restaurant Tequilas conecta con otros dos mexicanos y un mexicoamericano que se sentían tan aislados como él y comienzan una conversación sobre qué significa ser mexicano y estadounidense al mismo tiempo y que duraría más de 30 años. La perspectiva de estos cuatro amigos –David Suro, dueño del restaurante; Primo, académico y activista social, Ken Trujillo, criado en Nuevo México y con una carrera política por delante y el propio autor, será el marco en el que se cuenta esta historia. Aunque desde Estados Unidos piensan en México y su cultura como su patria original, todos acaban descubriendo que su patria es una mezcla de ambos países.
