Únase al Club de Lectura de la Biblioteca Central. Todos son bienvenidos. El libro de este mes es: El olvido que seremos de Héctor Abad Faciolince.

El 25 de agosto de 1987 Héctor Abad Gómez, médico y activista en pro de los derechos humanos, es asesinado en Medellín por los paramilitares. El olvido que seremos es su biografía novelada, escrita por su propio hijo. Un relato desgarrador y emocionante sobre la familia, que refleja, al tiempo, el infierno de la violencia que ha golpeado Colombia en los últimos cincuenta años. La novella ha sido ganadora del Premio WOLA-Duke en Derechos Humanos en Estados Unidos y del Prémio Criaçao Literária Casa da America Latina de Portugal.
