If you are a Millennial (ages 21-39) join us for a discussion of the book My favorite Thing is Monsters by Emil Ferris at Illusion Cafe & Bar (659 N. Wolf Road, Des Plaines):

Set against the tumultuous political backdrop of late ’60s Chicago, My Favorite Thing Is Monsters is the fictional graphic diary of 10-year-old Karen Reyes, filled with B-movie horror and pulp monster magazines iconography. Karen Reyes tries to solve the murder of her enigmatic upstairs neighbor, Anka Silverberg, a holocaust survivor, while the interconnected stories of those around her unfold. When Karen’s investigation takes us back to Anka’s life in Nazi Germany, the reader discovers how the personal, the political, the past, and the present converge.

Copies of the book will be available at the Readers Services' Desk one month prior to the discussion.
