Graphic Novel Book Club: The Property by Rutu Modan
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 January is Rutu Modan’s The Property! We will meet at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (211 Bernard O) on Wednesday, January 18th at 7:00 p.m. The discussion will be hosted by D+Q marketing director Julia Pohl-Miranda. Join us for refreshments and collective insights!
**We offer a 20% discount on The Property! from now until the meeting date.
In THE PROPERTY, a grandmother and granddaughter travel to Poland to reclaim a property lost during World War II. Upon arrival, it becomes clear that their trip may have different motivations than first indicated. Modan's characters are prickly and loving, sensitive and overbearing, easy-to-read and contradictory: in short, they’re as complex and unpredictable as real people. THE PROPERTY’s humor and realism are articulated perfectly in Modan’s clear-line style, accenting a work of fiction that is wry, engaging, and delightfully readable.

Heather ONeill launches "The Lonely Hearts Hotel" at the Rialto Hall
Join us for the launch of Heather O’Neill’s latest, exquisitely imagined and hypnotically told novel "The Lonely Hearts Hotel."
Set in the early part of the 20th Century, it is an unparalleled tale of charismatic pianos, invisible dance partners, radicalized chorus girls, drug-addicted musicians, brooding clowns, and an underworld whose fortune hinges on the price of a kiss. In a landscape like this, it takes great creative gifts to escape one's origins. It might also take true love.
**More details to come!
