Join Wayward Readers Society for a lively discussion of this month's book!

Embark on a journey to a fantastical, recently colonized new world where upside-down rain, wolf-bears, and immersive rainbows are just some of the many oddities and wonders. After tavern keeper Tom Orange rescues a mysterious woman from a river of flowers, she tells him she has amnesia. Neither he nor anyone else in the isolated town believes her. All they know is her name is Molly Bell, she recently gave birth, and she carries a chipped tooth in a locket. The suspicious inhabitants try to uncover her secrets, but they have other troubles; a band of thugs called Maimers are intercepting travelers in the surrounding woods and dealing out brutal fates.

Better Living Through Criticism by A. O. Scott

Thursday • July 13 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

Join the Odd Shelf book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

The New York Times film critic shows why we need criticism now more than ever.

Few could explain, let alone seek out, a career in criticism. Yet A.O. Scott shows in Better Living Through Criticism is that we are, in fact, all critics. Critical thinking informs almost every aspect of artistic creation, of civil action, of interpersonal life. With penetrating insight and warm humor, he proves that while individual critics—himself included—may make mistakes and find flaws where they shouldn't, criticism as a discipline is one of the noblest, most creative, and urgent arts of modern times. Discover a zealous and well-considered work of advocacy for a pursuit too often misunderstood.
