October Book Club

October 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Our October Book Club meeting will be held on October 9 (2nd Tuesday) at the home of Rick Greenberg. Rick has chosen the graphic novel, Fun Home: a FamilyTragicomic by Alison Bechdel. This book is a QUICK read.
From Amazon: “A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books.”
From Wikipedia:”
The memoir focuses on Bechdel’s family, and is centered on her relationship with her father, Bruce. Bruce Bechdel was a funeral director and high school English teacher in Beech Creek, where Alison and her siblings grew up. The book’s title comes from the family nickname for the funeral home, the family business in which Bruce Bechdel grew up and later worked; the phrase also refers ironically to Bruce Bechdel’s tyrannical domestic rule. Bruce Bechdel’s two occupations are reflected in Fun Home’s focus on death and literature.
