Come talk books with us! This month’s read – as selected by the group during our last meet-up – is Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World: A Novel by Haruki Murakami
As always, we’ll provide a variety of snacks to munch on during the meet-up. We’ll close out the meeting by voting on next month’s book, so have your suggestions ready!
If you’re unable to purchase and/or borrow the book, we’ll have a copy available to read in the Arts and Craft Library.
This is a free event. To join, just read the book and show up at 7pm on Sunday, 11/25. That’s all there is to it!
“Hyperkinetic and relentlessly inventive, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World is Haruki Murakami’s deep dive into the very nature of consciousness.
Across two parallel narratives, Murakami draws readers into a mind-bending universe in which Lauren Bacall, Bob Dylan, a split-brained data processor, a deranged scientist, his shockingly undemure granddaughter, and various thugs, librarians, and subterranean monsters collide to dazzling effect. What emerges is a novel that is at once hilariously funny and a deeply serious meditation on the nature and uses of the mind.”
