Next Graphic Novel Club Selection

Tuesday, Apr. 2nd | 6:30 PM – 7:30 p.m. | Board Room |

Discussing Passing for Human by Liana Finck

In this achingly beautiful graphic memoir, Liana Finck goes in search of that thing she has lost–her shadow, she calls it, but one might also think of it as the “otherness” or “strangeness” that has defined her since birth, that part of her that has always made her feel as though she is living in exile from the world. In Passing for Human, Finck is on a quest for self-understanding and self-acceptance, and along the way she seeks to answer some eternal questions: What makes us whole? What parts of ourselves do we hide or ignore or chase away–because they’re embarrassing, or inconvenient, or just plain weird–and at what cost?

Join us for our next book club meeting on Tuesday, April 2nd at 6:30 p.m. in the Library’s Board Room.
