Catapult Book Club

The next meeting of The Catapult Book Club will come to order on the evening of Thursday, October 12 at 7pm - we will be discussing our current selection, Dinosaurs by Lydia Millet.

"Few writers can inhabit multiple characters with equal intensity and vivacity, and most who can are, of course, playwrights or screenwriters... Sidik Fofana’s debut collection reveals him to have this rare gift... The collection introduces us to eight black residents of the Banneker Terrace apartments in Harlem... As the poem that introduces the collection asks, 'Everybody got a story, everybody got a tale / Question is: Is it despair or prevail?'... Fofana makes us feel viscerally the weight of life’s injustice... He doesn’t idealize or airbrush his characters, yet he enables us to know their wit, ingenuity, joy, and resilience..."  -Claire Messud

All book club selections are 20% off until the next meeting - and meetings are of course open to all!
