Former Sandinista Gioconda Belli’s El país de las mujeres is a fantastically original story. Partially as a result of a volcanic eruption, a group of women are able to reshape society based on feminist principles. When one of them is nearly assassinated and falls into a coma, she has visions reflecting on those changes.




All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator – to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore.

You can get your ticket (which includes us shipping the book to you!) right here at this link – OR just come in to the store and look for our book club display (near the book tunnel).
