A New Year, A New Book!

Thanks to the Get Liters who braved the cold temps on Thursday to discuss December's book "Night Film".

January's meeting will take place on Thursday January 9th at 7pm at the Barking Dog. We will be reading Katherine Dunn's GEEK LOVE. This story isn't about geeks of the nerdy kind, but geeks of the original kind..."a carnival performer who performs wild or disgusting acts". Geek Love tells the story of a family of circus performers who go to great lengths to create the most special attractions possible. 

Also, a film component since we speak of films as often as books, seek out Tod Browning's 1932 film Freaks. Controversial, odd, but now a cult classic, Freaks tells the story of a collection of circus performers and a love triangle that may tear them apart....gooble gobble...
