The Librairie D+Q Graphic Novel Club! Wednesday February 26th at 7pm!

You know we love us some Graphic Novels, right? And we know you love 'em too so that's why we're super-enthused to announce our inaugural meeting of our Graphic Novel club...hosted by D+Q associate publisher, Peggy Burns!

And every month we'll have a new meeting, hosted by D+Q bookstore or D+Q publishing house staffers, who will each choose GNs both new and old, D+Q and non, to discuss between the comfortable four walls of the bookstore. Refreshments will be provided and discussion will be lively! Come, one, come all, bring a friend...free to attend and 20% discount on that months selection for the entire month! Speaking of which...February's selection is:

Geneviève Castrée's Susceptible!

Published in 2013 and critically acclaimed,  Susceptible is the autobiographical story of a daydreamer growing up in Quebec in the '80s and '90s with a single mother. From a skillful artist comes a moving, beautiful story about families, loss, and growing up. Whether she's discussing nature versus nurture or the story of her birth, Castrée imbues her storytelling with a quiet power and a confidence in the strength of imagery.

With mesmerizing honesty Castrée resurrects the obscenely disorienting turning points of a childhood, the ones that haunt a person for a lifetime. After reading the last page I closed the book and wept a little bit about its simple, perfect ending. –Miranda July, author of It Chooses You and No One Belongs Here More Than You
