Bestiario by Julio Cortázar (Featuring Ana)
Jun 02, 2021 Season 1 Episode 14

Welcome to Book Bites! Hosted by teen services librarian Josh Sanchez, each episode will feature a guest who will talk about one of their favorite YA or teen books. We'll make recommendations for similar books, as well as movies, music--even food. New episodes are released on the first Tuesday of every month!

This month, we're talking to Ana about one of her favorite authors,  Julio Cortázar, and his collection of short stories, Bestiario. We discuss a lot about the author's background, innovative techniques, and the value of reading short stories. Ana discusses how Cortázar's writing spoke to her rebellious nature and need to break down the rigid traditions of literary fiction.
