Graphic Novel Discussion Group
(a.k.a. Book Club!)
Last Thursday of every month, from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
Join us as we discuss and debate the merits of a different book each month. New selections are chosen monthly with input from the group. No previous book group experience is necessary.
In October, we’ll be reading The Beast of Chicago, part of Rick Geary’s Treasury Of Victorian Murder series.
He was the world’s first serial killer and he existed in the late 19th century, operating around the Chicago World’s Fair, building a literal house of horrors, replete with chutes for dead bodies, gas chambers, surgical rooms. He methodically murdered up to 200 people, mostly young women. The infamous H.H. Holmes is the next subject of Geary’s award-winning and increasingly popular series.
Please note, this meeting will be on October 24.
In November, we’ll be reading congressman John Lewis’s The March: Book One.
The New York Times #1 Bestselling Graphic Novel is back! As seen on The Colbert Report and CNN, this is the first graphic novel from a sitting member of Congress, Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, and American icon. John Lewis rose from humble beginnings to become a national leader of the civil rights movement. This is his story, from an Alabama farm to the March on Washington and beyond, co-written by Andrew Aydin and brought to astonishing life by Nate Powell in a graphic novel trilogy. With a back cover blurb by President Bill Clinton!
