Graphic Novel Book Club
February 18 @ 7:30 pmPurchase Required
From the caves at Lascaux to the VR booths at Comic Con, we have always told stories with pictures. Graphic novels continue that human tradition in a surprising variety of styles and in every genre imaginable. This book club will read the latest books, though maybe not too many featuring crime fighters or mutants. We’re led by Jake Mumm, one of the founders of Comic Arts Los Angeles.
First up, in February, we’re reading On a Sunbeam from Tillie Walden. With interwoven timelines, this is partly the story of two boarding school girls falling in love and partly the story of an interstellar quest to restore architectural monuments. Walden is one of the youngest Eisner Award winners ever.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator – to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore.
You can get your ticket (which includes us shipping the book to you!) at this link right here – OR just come in to the store and look for our book club display (near the book tunnel).
If you choose the on-line option (the one with shipping), please send a mailing addy to firstname.lastname@example.org
