October book Discussion -- World War Z

Hello Everyone!

In honor of this month's book -- World War Z by Max Brooks -- we'll be dining at the Ze Mean Bean Cafe in Fells Point, an area known to attract a ghost or two. We may run into the living dead. Who knows?

Bring suggestions for December. In November we are reading Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris.

    The book "World War Z" offered both scathing and thought provoking insight into humanity through the filter of our dependency on technology, especially during the collapse of the rules and guidelines that define our civilization.

    Always a great time when Lisa plans the book meetings.

    So sorry to have missed it! I didn't know I couldn't make it until the last minute. I'll be there next month with a guest though!

    I like apocalyptic fiction that features what would happen when the thin veneer of civilization is removed. However, chics do not dig the zombie genre apparently (although Pride and Prejudice and Zombies might appease them). There certainly would be no more delicious pierogies with zombies eating everyone and Lisa covering herself in crab kluski slaskie. It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

    ZOMBIES bring out the best in everyone! What a great discussion! For anyone interested I use to do a seminar on various types of literature for librarians. One topic I covered was "Apocal-lit", the end of the world genre. I've add a few things since than, but if you're interested drop me a line at [masked] and I'll send you my must read "end of the world book list!"
