LLAGNY’s Graphic Novel Book Club
July 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Graphic Novel Book Club will meet via Zoom on Thursday, July 23rd at 12:00 PM. We will discuss: My Favorite Thing is Monsters.
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.
