The Man Who Could Move Clouds by Ingrid Rojas Contreras

Genre: Memoir | Led by: Doug | Drop-in event

Interweaving spellbinding family stories, resurrected Colombian history and her own deeply personal reckonings with the bounds of reality, the author shares her inheritance of "the secrets"—the power to talk to the dead, tell the future, treat the sick and move the clouds.


The Too Good to Be Missed Book Group meets the second Wednesday of the month at 1:30 pm. Participants can grab a copy of the book being discussed one month before the discussion date at the Adult Reference Desk, or check out a copy through Libby/Overdrive.
