Thursday Book Club

February 25, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Thursday Book Club February Selection:

Thursday Book ClubMr Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

An entertaining story about an out of work web designer who gets a job working nights at a 24 hour San Fransisco book store.  Working nights, he begins to encounter some oddities which leads him to investigate more about the book store and its owner. His curiosity takes him to Google and a secret society.

George Saunders of Blip Magazine called Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore:

“a real tour-de-force, a beautiful fable that is given legs by the author’s bravado use of the real (Google is in there, for instance, the actual campus) to sell us on a shadow world of the unreal and the speculative. Robin Sloan comes across as so bighearted, so in love with the world—the ancient world, the contemporary world—so in love with love, in love with friendship, in love with the idea that our technical abilities can serve as conduits for beauty, that the reader is swept along by his enthusiasm. It’s a lot of fun—but it’s also a powerful reading experience with a wonderful undeniability.”

A really great read with interesting twists.

Pick up a copy at the library today then join us for the discussion, Thursday, February 25 6-7 pm.
