In October, Let’s Read will discuss How Not to Drown in a Glass of Water by Angie Cruz.

Cara Romero thought she would work at the factory of little lamps for the rest of her life. But when, in her mid-50s, she loses her job in the Great Recession, she is forced back into the job market for the first time in decades. Over the course of twelve job counseling sessions, Cara recounts turbulent love affairs, her relationships with her neighbor, sister, and son, and her struggles with debt, gentrification, and loss. As Cara confronts her darkest secrets and regrets, we see a woman bruised by life but still full of fight.
