Join us for a spirited discussion of the comic book world. The meeting will focus on a featured comic or graphic novel and we’ll talk about what people are currently reading. This month’s title is Hawkeye, Vol. 1: My Life as a Weapon (Marvel NOW!)
Do you find yourself constantly asking people what they are reading? Do you love talking to people about books, poems, and essays? We'll chat about what we are reading and maybe
even read aloud for a bit. Just sit and listen -- or share!
Song of the Jayhawk was inspired by the lives of the author's great-great grandparents, who settled near Atchison, Kansas, in the 1850s. A story of courage and despair, loyalty and betrayal, it follows two young families as they struggle with rattlesnakes, tornadoes, ice storms, childbirth and morality in a war-torn land. Hear the author share parts of the novel, its historical context, and tales of his family's connection to both.
