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 October is The! Greatest! Of! Marlys! by Lynda Barry. We will meet at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (211 Bernard O) on Wednesday, October 5th at 7:00 p.m. The discussion will be hosted by D+Q Marketing Assistant Sruti Islam. Join us for refreshments and collective insights!
**We offer a 20% discount on The! Greatest! Of! Marlys! by Lynda Barry from now until the meeting date.

"Lynda Barry's comics were my YA, before YA really even existed. She's been writing teen stories with an incredibly clear voice since the early 80's. [The! Greatest! Of! Marlys!] is raw, ugly, hilarious, and poignant." — Raina Telgemeier, Smile & Drama
