This month, Tacoma Art Museum has selected 'Signs Preceding the End of the World' by Yuri Herrera.

From Publisher's Weekly Reviews:

Herrera's first book to be translated into English tells the story of a border-crossing from Mexico into the U.S. Makina is a young woman asked by her mother to deliver an envelope to her brother, who crossed over into the U.S. three years earlier and has only sent a few cryptic pieces of correspondence since. The story opens with a man, a car, and a dog swallowed up by a sinkhole, a product of over-mining the land for silver ('These things always happen to someone else, until they happen to you,' Makina thinks).

Presented by Tacoma Art Museum, funded by Tacoma Creates, hosted by Tacoma Public Library.
