EC BOOK CLUB - NEIL GAIMAN'S DEATH (FROM THE SANDMAN)!
Posted by NEIL JOHNSON on
Sunday, November 6th from 4:30 to 5:30pm
The Emerald City Book Club meets the FIRST SUNDAY of the month from 4:30 to 5:30 pm in our Events Room, to chat about the featured book. We sometimes begin the meetings with a "Comics 101" introduction giving some historical, artistic, or social background on the book, and then we dive right into discussion!
The featured book for the next meeting will be announced at the end of the current ECBC meeting. That book is 20% OFF for the month leading up to its ECBC meeting! (The discount will be calculated at the register, and does not combine with any other discounts or programs). If the featured book is a later volume in a series and you haven't read the earlier volumes, just let us know at the register and we'll give you 20% off THOSE volumes too!
You can purchase the discounted book in-store or online:
This month's featured book is...
NEIL GAIMAN'S DEATH
(W) Gaiman, Neil (A) Bachalo, Chris (CA) McKean, Dave
The first story introduces the young, pale, perky, and genuinely likable Death. One day in every century, Death walks the Earth to better understand those to whom she will be the final visitor. Today is that day. As a young mortal girl named Didi, Death befriends a teenager and helps a 250-year old homeless woman find her missing heart. What follows is a sincere musing on love, life and (of course) death. In the second story, a rising star of the music world wrestles with revealing her true sexual orientation just as her lover is lured into the realm of Death that Death herself should make an appearance. A practical, honest, and intelligent story that illuminates "the miracle of death."
