Hey Hipsters and Bibliophiles,
Back by popular demand... Room: A Novell
by Emma Donoghue.
The first meetup filled up, so we will be offering a secondary meetup courtesy of convicted bilbiophile Tiffany! Room: A Novell
by Emma Donoghue.
In many ways, Jack is a typical 5-year-old. He likes to read books, watch TV, and play games with his Ma. But Jack is different in a big way--he has lived his entire life in a single room, sharing the tiny space with only his mother and an unnerving nighttime visitor known as Old Nick. For Jack, Room is the only world he knows, but for Ma, it is a prison in which she has tried to craft a normal life for her son. When their insular world suddenly expands beyond the confines of their four walls, the consequences are piercing and extraordinary. Despite its profoundly disturbing premise, Emma Donoghue's Room is rife with moments of hope and beauty, and the dogged determination to live, even in the most desolate circumstances. A stunning and original novel of survival in captivity, readers who enter Room will leave staggered, as though, like Jack, they are seeing the world for the very first time.
I had no problems finding this at the local independent bookstore.Room: A Novell
is available on Amazon.com, however, I encourage you all to support your local independent book store or library:City Paper's List of Independent BookstoresGoogle Map/Listing of Independent Bookstores in Philly
You will notice that that if you RSVP "Yes," you'll be charged to attend. This is to help me cover my costs as Organizer and reduce the number of no-shows we have at meetings. Please keep in mind I'm only giving refunds if the meeting is canceled or rescheduled, not if you change your mind about attending.Thinking about coming when the Meetup is FULL? Read/click here.
