What Did We Just Read?! Book Club

March's Meeting

Do you like to be left scratching your head after finishing a book? Do you enjoy asking yourself, “What, exactly, did I just read?” What Did I Just Read?! Book Club may be just what you’re looking for!

Once a month, we’ll meet to discuss an innovative work of literature that avoids taking the straight path from A to B. These books sometimes start at B, or they skip B, or they never really leave A. Perhaps they just circle around point C. Whether thrilling, heartbreaking, terrifying, or goofy, What The?! seeks to explore and discuss the kinds of books that even other books think are weird.

For March’s meeting, we'll be reading the first half of Mark Z. Danielewski’s House of Leaves, a part-documentary, part-horror tale, full-on immersive reading experience you have to read to believe, all stemming from Will Navidson’s bizarre, seemingly innocuous yet unsettling discovery that his family’s house is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

What Did We Just Read?! Book Club will meet on Wednesday, March 11, at 7:30 p.m.
