'Valley of the Dolls'

We love the classics and literary fiction here at the Chevy Chase library, but it can’t all be Middlemarch, right?  Sometimes you have to read something fun, easy and frequently ridiculous. Then, preferably, you want to discuss it over drinks with friends. Hence Chevy Chase DC Library’s new book club Lowbrow Throwdown.
