Next Meetup

Hello there! This month we are discussing THE FIRST FIFTEEN LIVES OF HARRY AUGUST by Claire North. An elusive description from the publisher: "Harry August is on his deathbed. Again. "No matter what he does or the decisions he makes, when death comes, Harry always returns to where he began, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived a dozen times before. Nothing ever changes. "Until now. "As Harry nears the end of his eleventh life, a little girl appears at his bedside. 'I nearly missed you, Doctor August," she says. "I need to send a message. "This is the story of what Harry does next, and what he did before, and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he cannot allow." Durham County Library patrons can place a hold on the book at$002f$002fSD_ILS$002f0$002fSD_ILS:594185/ada?qu=first+fifteen+lives+claire+north or by calling[masked], but everyone is welcome! It's also available at the Chapel Hill Public Library, Orange County Public Library, and (ebook only) at Wake County Library.

    What we're about

    Are you a reader who likes your space opera spiked with murder mystery, your romance set in an alternate history, or your family drama laced with magic? Then Sub-Genre-O-Rama is the book club for you!

    The Sub-Genre-O-Rama Book Club tackles books that fit niche readerships, books that cross genre lines in interesting or unexpected ways, and books that are just plain weird. To see the full list of books we've read, visit our title list (

    As a program run by the Durham County Library, this event is free and open to the public -- Durham residence not required! Although books selected are held by Durham County Library, we'll do our best to keep an eye out for titles that are also available in Wake County Libraries and Chapel Hill Public Library.

    Question or comments? Feel free to message us through Meetup, or call the library at 919-560-8590.

    Hope to see you soon!
