Graphic Novel Book Club: Ghost World
Each month we host a Graphic Novel Book Club meeting, open to all, during which we hang out and informally discuss a featured graphic novel. Our pick for July is Daniel Clowes' Ghost World.
We will meet at the Drawn & Quarterly bookstore on Wednesday, July 15th at 7 PM. Discussion will be hosted by D+Q marketing assistant, Alexandra. There will be refreshments and collective insight! We offer you a 20% discount on Ghost World from June 24th until the meeting date.
Ghost World is acclaimed cartoonist Dan Clowes's best-known work; a Catcher in the Rye for its generation and the basis for the Academy Award-nominated film. Together we'll explore the world of Enid and Rebecca, two above-it-all teenaged best friends confronted with the prospect of adulthood and the uncertain future of their friendship.
