Totally Graphic Book Club

When: Friday, December 9, 5 PM 
Where: Dog-Eared Books 

High Schoolers! Are you short on time (or attention) but want all the coziness of a book club in a bonafide bookshop? Join us each month for Capri Suns and snacks and discussions of the graphic novel we’ll read each month.

This book club is for students in grades 9-12, and will meet the second Friday of each month.

Registration is required each month to participate in the Totally Graphic book club.

From the author of The Deep & Dark Blue comes a tender graphic novel, perfect for our time, that gently explores themes of self-discovery, friendship, healing from tragedy, and hope for a better tomorrow.

Struggling with anxiety after witnessing a harrowing instance of gun violence, Manuel Soto copes through photography, using his cell-phone camera to find anchors that keep him grounded. His days are a lonely, latchkey monotony until he’s teamed with his classmates, Sebastian and Caysha, for a group project.

Sebastian lives on a grass-fed cattle farm outside of town, and Manuel finds solace in the open fields and in the antics of the newborn calf Sebastian is hand-raising. As Manuel aides his new friends in their preparations for the local county fair, he learns to open up, confronts his deepest fears, and even finds first love.

Pick up a free copy (once registered) that was paid for and sponsored by a community member, or grab it from the library, and join us at Dog·Eared Books at 5 PM on Friday, December 9, to discuss!

Registration is required each month to participate in the book club. Seats are limited to 8
participants; register today to save a seat.
