Something About the Author Book Discussion
The book club will discuss author Isabel Allende. Allende was born on August 2, 1942 in Lima, Peru. When Allende’s father deserted their family, they went to live with their grandfather in Chile. Observing that her mother had no money of her own & no say in the decisions made, Allende was determined to work & earn her own living. She began her career as a journalist working in television & writing for magazines. In 1981, Allende began writing to her grandfather, who was dying in Chile. This letter became the basis for her first novel, The House of the Spirits, which became a worldwide bestseller.
