"Book Cube 1" by Larry Wentzel;FlickrDo you like to be left scratching your head after finishing a book? Do you enjoy asking yourself, “What, exactly, did I just read?”

What Did I Just Read?! Book Club may be just what you’re looking for! Once a month, we’ll meet to discuss an innovative work of literature that avoids taking the straight path from A to B. These books sometimes start at B, or they skip B, or they never really leave A. Perhaps they just circle around point C. Whether thrilling, heartbreaking, terrifying, or goofy, What The?! seeks to explore and discuss the kinds of books that even other books think are weird. 

What The?! meets on the second Wednesday of the month at a bar or restaurant near Takoma Park Library beginning September 10. Email torin.jensen@dc.gov for questions or to RSVP for the next meeting.
