Adult Book Club
Pick up Francis Gregory's Adult Book Club's January selection, Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things by Jenny Lawson.
"Furiously Happy is about "taking those moments when things are fine and making them amazing, because those moments are what make us who we are, and they're the same moments we take into battle with us when our brains declare war on our very existence. It's the difference between "surviving life" and "living life". It's the difference between "taking a shower" and "teaching your monkey butler how to shampoo your hair." It's the difference between being "sane" and being "furiously happy."
"Lawson is beloved around the world for her inimitable humor and honesty, and in Furiously Happy, she is at her snort-inducing funniest. This is a book about embracing everything that makes us who we are - the beautiful and the flawed - and then using it to find joy in fantastic and outrageous ways. Because as Jenny's mom says, "Maybe 'crazy' isn't so bad after all." Sometimes crazy is just right."
Francis A. Gregory's Adult Book Club meets the fourth Thursday of each month. Participants can pick up copies of the selected title from the Book Club display located by the circulation desk. Please see the Adult Services Librarian or call 202-698-6373 for more information.
