Announcing the Genre X Book Club

On Thursday, October 16, a brand-new library book club aimed at readers of the Millennial and Gen-X generations will make its debut.  With the motto “Not your mother’s book club,” Genre-X Book Club meetings are sure to be fun and full of thought-provoking discussions, not to mention coffee and laughter, and potentially pizza.

The club will meet one Thursday a month (usually the third Thursday) at 7:00 p.m. in the Central Library auditorium. 

The first book is the contemporary classic satire Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk, which was the basis of the cult film starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.  It’s a quick, punchy read, and veritably bursting with things to talk about.  If the first rule of Fight Club is you don’t talk about Fight Club, then the first rule of book club is … well, that we will talk about Fight Club.  Or something like that.

In November, the club will tackle the nonfiction National Book Award-winner Just Kids, by Patti Smith, followed in December by the critically lauded graphic novel Black Hole, by Charles Burns.

Please direct any potential members’ questions to Jeff W. or Laura M. of Central Reference.
