We’re All Gonna Die! Dystopian Book Club with Peter Clines

7:30 p.m.

Continuing our fun romp into THE END OF ALL THINGS, please join us for this book club which explores dystopia and the post-apocalypse in their bewildering array of forms, with our host NY Times bestselling author Peter Clines.¬† Yes, we’re doomed, but we’re doomed together.

 

Margaret Atwood! In January, we’re reading her novel Oryx and Crake. This post-apocalyptic¬†tale is told mostly in flashback, as “Snowman” recalls a tangle of relationships and madness that ended humanity, and left him shepherd of a post-human tribe.¬† To tell you more about this story would spoil the secret of how it all came crashing down.

 

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator – to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore.

You can get your ticket (which includes us shipping the book to you!) at this link right here – OR just come in to the store and look for our book club display (near the book tunnel).

If you choose the on-line option (the one with shipping), please send a mailing addy to larkin.lastbookstore@gmail.com

 

PETER CLINES is a generations-back New Englander (we’re talking tall hats and buckled shoes and half-the-population-dies-every-winter generations-back) who broke with tradition and moved to Southern California.

After more than thirty years of writing, fifteen years in the film industry, and six years of writing about writing for the film industry, plus getting several short stories and a novel or ten published (one of which–Paradox Bound–hit the NYT Bestseller list), he feels he has some experience and useful advice to offer.
