Vicious by V. E. Schwab

Tuesday • November 7 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

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

Victor and Eli started out as college roommates, but after they discovered how to give themselves superpowers, their lives took drastically different turns. Ten years later, Victor has just broken out of jail, and Eli is working for the police. But things are not as black-and-white as they may seem. Victor was innocent of the crime he was imprisoned for and Eli has been hunting others with supernatural abilities. In Vicious, V. E. Schwab brings to life a gritty comic-book-style world with vivid prose: a world where gaining superpowers doesn't automatically lead to heroism and allegiances are called into question.

Eruption by Steve Olson

Wednesday • November 8 • 6pm

U District store

Join True Grace book club for a lively discussion of this month's book.

Read the book...and then talk about it with the author!

National Book Award finalist Steven Olson joins us for a discussion of this month's book, Eruption. Survival narrative meets scientific, natural, and social history in the riveting story of Mount St. Helens. For months in early 1980, people listened anxiously to the rumblings of the mountain. Still, no one was prepared for what would come. Its eruption was one of the largest in human history. It deposited ash in 11 U.S. states and five Canadian provinces, caused more than one billion dollars in damage, and killed 57 people. Shedding new light on the cataclysm, Olson interweaves the history and science behind this event with stories of what happened to those who lived and those who died.

26 Seconds by Alexandra Zapruder

Wednesday • November 8 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

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

Abraham Zapruder didn't know when he ran home to grab his video camera on November 22, 1963 that this single spontaneous decision would change his family's life for generations to come. 26 Seconds is the moving, untold family story behind Abraham Zapruder's film footage of the Kennedy assassination and its lasting impact on our world. Part biography, part family history, and part historical narrative, it demonstrates how one man's unwitting moment in the spotlight shifted the way politics, culture, and media intersect, bringing about the larger social questions that define our age.
