New Meeting: genteXt Book Group: May Meeting with a Graphic Novel

From: Jennifer
Sent on: Wednesday, April 23, 2008 12:49 PM
Announcing a new meeting for genteXt Book Group: Books, Bars and Beers!

What: genteXt Book Group: May Meeting with a Graphic Novel

When: Monday, May 19, 8:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Who should come: We are a book discussion group from people aged 21 to 40 in the Triangle area.

Why: It's an interesting group of people and we read interesting (and diverse) books.

Meeting Description: The Book

At previous meetings we've had a umber of requests for a graphic novel, so here it is folks (hopefully the first of many)--

Maus by Art Spiegelman

For those of you who don't know it, Maus: A Survivor's Tale: My Father Bleeds History is one of the classic works written about the Holocaust. It may be better to let the reviews speak for me:

?An epic story told in tiny pictures.?
?The New York Times

?A loving documentary and brutal fable, a mix of compassion and stoicism sums up the experience of the Holocaust with as much power and as little pretension as any other work I can think of.?
?The New Republic

?A quiet triumph, moving and simple?impossible to describe accurately, and impossible to achieve in any medium but comics.?
?The Washington Post

If you've not read a graphic novel, this will be a wonderful introduction. If you've read one, this is a classic. If you've read this graphic novel, please read it again and share how the book's meaning has changed for you.

The Place--City Beverage

We are meeting a little early in the month of May to avoid Memorial Day and have chosen a location on a new side of Durham with OUTDOOR seating. The weather should be lovely at the end of May--perfect for a cool beer outdoors with good conversation and a powerful book.
