Announcing 'Lowbrow Throwdown' Book Club

'After' by Anna Todd

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.

Anna Todd’s One Direction fanfiction novel After became such an Internet sensation that the publishing rights were sold for six figures.  After was just released in book form on Oct. 22 --- and we’re reading it as our first book!

Our first meeting will be on Monday, Dec. 15 in the Boiler Room at Jake’s American Grille  (5018 Connecticut Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20008) at 7 pm. Copies of After can be reserved through or you can read the original Wattpad version.
