‘The Feminist Reading Club of La Tribu (devised by Carmen G. de la Cueva) has been held since last year in more than ten Spanish cities with great success, since in most cities the clubs are complete.
It is a free club (you just have to read the book before) in which you talk in a relaxed way about a series of books chosen by the founder of La Tribu (blog of literature and feminism).
The book that is read for the club’s month of January is “Leonora” by Elena Poniatowska (512 pages).
Summary and Synopsis of Leonora by Elena Poniatowska
An indomitable woman, a rebellious spirit… a legend. One of those novels that one simply can not miss. She was destined to grow up as the rich heiress of a textile industry mogul, but from a young age she knew that it was different, that her ability to see what others did not see made her special. He challenged social conventions, his parents and teachers, and broke any religious or ideological ties to conquer his right to be a free woman, personally and artistically. Leonora Carrington is today a legend, the most important surrealist painter, and her fascinating life, the material from which our dreams are nourished. Leonora lived the most turbulent love story with the painter Max Ernst. With him he immersed himself in the whirlwind of surrealism, and he rubbed shoulders in Paris with Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Joan Miró, André Breton and Pablo Picasso; for Max went crazy when he was sent to a concentration camp. Leonora was confined in a mental hospital in Santander, from which she escaped to conquer New York with Peggy Guggenheim. He settled in Mexico and there has culminated one of the most unique and great artistic and literary works. It is not the first time that Elena Poniatowska portrays an exceptional woman as nobody. The incredible life of Leonora Carrington is, in her hands, an exciting adventure, a cry of freedom and an elegant approach to the historical vanguards of the first half of the 20th century.’
