Join the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library Graphic Novel Book Club as we read Killing and Dying by Adrian Tomine. Killing and Dying is a stunning showcase of the possibilities of the graphic novel medium and a wry exploration of loss, creative ambition, identity, and family dynamics. With this work, Adrian Tomine (Shortcomings , Scenes from an Impending Marriage) reaffirms his place not only as one of the most significant creators of contemporary comics but as one of the great voices of modern American literature.

The Graphic Novel Book Group is on Goodreads - see what we've read, what we plan to read, and join the conversation in between meetings!

This meeting will take place at the Morse Institute Library. Copies of Killing and Dying will be available at the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Dave Bartos at 508-647-6521 or Meena Jain at 508-653-6730.

Join the Morning Book Group as we read The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape...

Join the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library Graphic Novel Book Club as we read Pyongyang: A Journey into North Korea by Guy Delisle. Famously referred to as one of the "Axis of Evil" countries, North Korea remains one of the most secretive and mysterious nations in the world today. In early 2001 cartoonist Guy Delisle became one of the few Westerners to be allowed access to the fortresslike country. While living in the nation's capital for two months on a work visa for a French film animation company, Delisle observed what he was allowed to see of the culture and lives of the few North Koreans he encountered; his findings form the basis of this remarkable graphic novel.

The Graphic Novel Book Group is on Goodreads - see what we've read, what we plan to read, and join the conversation in between meetings!

Graphic Novel Book Group takes places on the second Thursday of each month. Copies of this month's title will be available at the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Dave Bartos at 508-647-6521 or Meena Jain at 508-653-6730.

Join the Wednesday Evening Book Group as we read Cannery Row by John Steinbeck. Published in 1945, Cannery Row focuses on the acceptance of life as it is: both the exuberance of community and the loneliness of the individual. Drawing on his memories of the real inhabitants of Monterey, California, Steinbeck interweaves the stories of Doc, Dora, Mack and his boys, Lee Chong, and the other characters in this world where only the fittest survive, to create a novel that is at once one of his most humorous and poignant works.

And remember to catch up with the Wednesday Evening Book Group online! Check back all month and get the book discussion started early.

Join the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library Graphic Novel Book Club as we read SuperMutant Magic Academy by Jillian Tamaki. The story focuses around Marsha, a tomboyish, frumpy broom-flyer, and Wendy, her beautiful best friend who can transform into a fox. Marsha's very real love for Wendy drives the text, but other students have their own agonies, which they keep hidden in plain sight. The humor is sometimes slapstick, but more often it offers ultra-dry observations on modern disengagement. Tamaki is playful and loose with her art, unafraid to be experimental as she draws us into a world where true feelings are the greatest danger.
