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 BALLAD OF BLACK TOM by Victor Lavalle.

Charles Thomas Tester hustles to put food on the table, keep the roof over his father’s head, from Harlem to Flushing Meadows to Red Hook. He knows what magic a suit can cast, the invisibility a guitar case can provide, and the curse written on his skin that attracts the eye of wealthy white folks and their cops. But when he delivers an occult tome to a reclusive sorceress in the heart of Queens, Tom opens a door to a deeper realm of magic, and earns the attention of things best left sleeping.
A storm that might swallow the world is building in Brooklyn. Will Black Tom live to see it break?...

 

Kyle Qurazzo, Tech Services, will lead the discussion. Questions? (317) 398-7121 ext. 228 or kqurazzo@sscpl.lib.in.us
