So sorry but due to a loss of power, book club tonight has been canceled. Please check this website later for an update on rescheduling.

Below, find information from Amazon about our next books. As always, you can borrow book club reads (typically available in several formats) from your local library (or follow this local library link), or purchase them from your local independent book store, or on-line from sites such as Amazon, where they are no doubt available in a variety of formats and editions.

 A friend reports that people either love this book or loathe it. Come share your review! Join us at 1170 Broadway at 7pm on December 13th. Enter through the side door on Clarendon.

A Confederacy of Dunces
“A Confederacy of Dunces is an American comic masterpiece. John Kennedy Toole’s hero, one Ignatius J. Reilly, is “huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter. His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans’ lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures” (Henry Kisor, Chicago Sun-Times).”
