Lowbrow Throw Down

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Okay, so we heard a rumor that the YA fantasy bestseller City of Bones is largely repurposed Harry Potter fanfiction.  This rumor is very, very difficult to verify (at least to the satisfaction of a librarian) but it's enough for us to choose it as our January selection.  (You can hear more about Cassandra Clare and the sometimes labyrinthian world of fanfiction here. FYI, NSFW.)  If you feel like comparing and contrasting, you can probably find Clare's 'Draco Trilogy' somewhere on the web.

We will be meeting on January 19 at 8 p.m. at the Boiler Room downstairs at Jake's American Grille.  (5018 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20008).

You can reserve a copy of the book or the eBook through our online catalog.  Enjoy, and be sure to visit our Meetup page
