Books & Brew: Not Your Mother's Book Club (Cagney's)

  • Cagney’s Pizza King 33 E Broadway St. Shelbyville, IN, 46176 United States (map)

This is a community for younger adults, 20s-30s, and the young at heart. We meet once a month to discuss books, films, and other "hot topics" at Cagney's Pizza King. 

Copies of the book are located in the Book Club Display to the right of the main desk in the library. This month, we will be discussing THE BOOK OF LOST THINGS by John Connolly.

High in his attic bedroom, twelve-year-old David mourns the death of his mother, with only the books on his shelf for company. But those books have begun to whisper to him in the darkness. Angry and alone, he takes refuge in his imagination and soon finds that reality and fantasy have begun to meld. While his family falls apart around him, David is violently propelled into a world that is a strange reflection of his own — populated by heroes and monsters and ruled by a faded king who keeps his secrets in a mysterious book, The Book of Lost Things.

Taking readers on a vivid journey through the loss of innocence into adulthood and beyond, New York Times bestselling author John Connolly tells a dark and compelling tale that reminds us of the enduring power of stories in our lives...
