The next meeting of The Catapult Book Club will come to order on the evening of Thursday, November 8th at 7pm. We will be discussing the October 2018 selection, The Changeling by Victor Lavalle.
“If the literary gods mixed together Haruki Murakami and Ralph Ellison, the result would be Victor LaValle.” - Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See
"Fiercely defies categorization. Written as a self-proclaimed ‘fairy tale’ in a punchy, inviting style, Mr. LaValle’s haunting tale weaves a mesmerizing web around fatherhood, racism, horrific anxieties and even To Kill a Mockingbird." - Janet Maslin, NY Times
"Like a good Coen brothers film, this genre-defying, achingly literate phantasmagoria of a novel will work every nook and cranny of the imagination, taking the reader to places we’re either too afraid to visit or never knew existed.” - Paul Beatty, author of The Sellout
"A dark fairy tale of New York, full of magic and loss, myth and mystery, love and madness. The Changeling is a mesmerizing, monumental work.” - Marlon James, author of A Brief History of Seven Killings
Book club selections will be offered at a 20% discount for the month leading up to the meeting. Please join us on November 8th for another lively discussion!
