What is Café Literario?

Café Literario exists to foster the reading of good books in community.


Café Literario is all about:

  • Forming a community that is diverse, open and interested in growing together through mutual interaction
  • Engaging in deep and challenging conversations about things that really matter
  • Making friends with those who share our passion for reading and learning


These are the authors that we have read together these last few years:

Edgar Allen Poe, Flannery O’Connor, Leo Tolstoy, John Steinbeck, Truman Capote, Aldous Huxley, Julio Cortázar, J.R.R. Tolkien, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, James Joyce, Ernesto Sabato, Rainer Maria Rilke, Italo Calvino, Bertolt Brecht, Mario Vargas Llosa, T.S. Eliot, Franz Kafka, Silvina Ocampo, Martha Nussbaum, and César Vallejo, Margaret Atwood, Chinua Achebe, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Virginia Woolf.

We have also had a special night for poetry with “una picada” and an end-of-the-year celebration with a book exchange.
