Last month we posted about a new book club on campus: The Paperback Posse, which was then reading Pynchon’s The Crying of Lot 49.
Reader-in-chief Alicia Furhman ’12 writes in with a new book selection, this one by a Wesleyan alumnus and faculty member:
The Paperback Posse, Wesleyan’s student-run book club, will be reading writer-in-residence Amy Bloom ’75‘s latest work, Where the God of Love Hangs Out. Pick up a copy and start it, then join in weekly discussions, Thursdays, 4:15 PM, Allbritton Cafe.
In other news, the year’s most bizarrely titled book, according to The Bookseller Magazine, was awarded to Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes, for combining “…on the one hand… the typically feminine, gentle and wooly world of needlework and on the other, the exciting but incredibly un-wooly world of hyperbolic geometry and negative curvature. In Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes the two worlds collide in a captivating and quite breathtaking way. Other competitors included What Kind of Bean Is This Chihuahua, Afterthoughts of a Worm Hunter, Governing Lethal Behavior in Autonomous Robots, and The Changing World of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
- What: Book club discussions
- When: Every Thursday, 4:15
- Where: Albritton Cafe
Great image, and here’s to bringing the author of The Changing World of Inflammatory Bowel Disease to Wes!
