Summer Selections from Twentythirtysomething Book Club (TTBC)

Join TTBC, a DC Public Library book group for younger adults at least 21 years old, as we read and discuss the following titles over the warm weather months.

On Wednesday, July 20, we will discuss “Fourth of July Creek” by Smith Henderson at Mad Fox Tap Room (2218 Wisconsin Ave. NW) in Glover Park.
Skillful social worker Pete Snow — already grappling with his own fraught personal life — struggles as he attempts to assist Benjamin Pearl, a borderline feral eleven-year-old, as doing so brings him closer to the boy’s potentially dangerous survivalist father Jeremiah in this tense debut novel.

In August, date and location TBD, we will discuss “The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone” by Olivia Laing
Laing’s “electric, dazzling” book, an idiosyncratic blend of memoir, biography, and philosophy, draws on the lives of six iconic artists, from Warhol to Wojnarowicz, to explore and interrogate what it means to be alone in the crowd of modern urban existence.

On Wednesday, September 24, we will discuss “The Clasp” by Sloane Crosley at Mad Fox Tap Room (2218 Wisconsin Ave. NW) in Glover Park.
Comedic essayist Crosley makes her fiction debut with a novel in which college friends Kezia, Nathaniel, and Victor reunite at a wedding and contend with territory both familiar — their interpersonal dynamics — and extraordinary, as a chance encounter propels them into a tricky search for the necklace immortalized in Guy de Maupassant’s classic short story.

Join the Georgetown branch of DC Public Library on Monday, June 20 at 7 pm for a few rounds of Paperbacks, a game of literary imagination.
