Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children coverFor our next bookclub meeting we’ll be reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. A young adult novel, it features historical photographs—the protagonist uses them in attempting to puzzle out if phenomenon he encounters are myth or reality.

Selected by Amazon’s editors as one of the Best Books of the Year So Far, Miss Peregrine’s Home promises to be an atmospheric and twisty book. Watch the book trailer for more.

Join us for discussion of our current book as well as helping decide our next selection.

This is what you missed at our last bookclub meeting:

We read The Adventures of Guy by Norm Cowie. To summarize: a casual romp of a quest for a group of stereotypical slackers.

It’s super-cheap in the Kindle store and there was one cool concept in it. That, however, is about all we can say for it. To quote one bookclub member: “I’m glad it’s over.” I suspect we’ll be more selective in the future. Come help us be more selective!

When: Monday, August 8, 2011 – 6:30pm-8:00pm

Where: First or second floor of the Noble Tree Cafe 2444 N. Clark Street Chicago, IL

Cost: Free
