Since 2008, Freebird Books--a used bookshop on the Brooklyn waterfront--has held a monthly book club focused on post-apocalyptic and dystopian novels. We're currently meeting virtually but you can still support the store by going to https://bookshop.org/shop/FreebirdBooks when you buy your next book.
Apocalypse or not, there will be bookclub. We’re currently using Zoom to hold meetings. RSVPing should let you have access to the meeting link.
For June we are reading Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro. If you buy the book, please consider purchasing from Freebird Books and Goods at https://bookshop.org/lists/the-brooklyn-post-apocalyptic-book-club .
Here is the story of Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, who, from her place in the store, watches carefully the behavior of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass on the street outside. She remains hopeful that a customer will soon choose her.
