What Did We Just Read?! Book Club

May'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 May’s meeting, we'll be reading the remarkable novel A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing by Eimear McBride. In this story of girlhood punctuated by familial illness and violence, readers are plunged into the chaotic world of the narrator’s head and experience first-hand her struggle to navigate her rapidly changing world.

What Did We Just Read?! Book Club will meet on Wednesday, May 13, at 7:30 p.m.
