The Chilean tasting is in celebration of the upcoming Fallbrook Community Read luncheon and lecture at Pala Mesa Resort on Saturday, May 14, at 11 a.m. Featured is Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Hector Tobar, author of “Deep Down Dark,” the story of 33 men who were buried for 69 days in a collapsed Chilean mine in 2010.
Tobar’s account is described as “A masterwork of narrative journalism and a stirring testament to the power of the human spirit.” Tobar’s text was the inspiration for the film “The 33.” Tickets for the luncheon are $35 and may be purchased at The Bottom Shelf or at www.fallbrooklibraryfriends.org.
