Non-Fiction Book Club: All of the Marvels by Douglas Wolk ONLINE
Westwood Public Library

Monday, May 23, 7pm
“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.” - Lemony Snicket.

All are welcome to join this new book club which aims to read timely books across subjects: history, science, medicine, nature, and more.  We anticipate lively discussion and will provide as much additional resources to assit with discussion in the month before discussion date.  Copies of the book will be available the month prior at the circulation desk, or be sure to check online through Libby or Hoopla.

All of the Marvels:  The first-ever full reckoning with Marvel Comics’ interconnected, half-million-page story, a revelatory guide to the “epic of epics”—and to the past sixty years of American culture—from a beloved authority on the subject who read all 27,000+ Marvel superhero comics and lived to tell the tale.

“Brilliant, eccentric, moving and wholly wonderful. . . . Wolk proves to be the perfect guide for this type of adventure: nimble, learned, funny and sincere. . . . All of the Marvels is magnificently marvelous. Wolk’s work will invite many more alliterative superlatives. It deserves them all.” —Junot Díaz, New York Times Book Review
