"Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore" by Robin Sloan, has been consistently checked-out since we put copies of it on display at the end of August. Whether you have finished reading the story or are still working on it, or even if you haven't yet read it, we invite you to join us for a special event on Tuesday, October 8th, at 7pm, when we talk with the author, Robin Sloan. Mr. Sloan is excited and honored that Boone County selected his book for our community read, and he will answer questions and talk with us from San Francisco via Skype.
"Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore" is getting a lot of great buzz, with a 4-star rating on Goodreads, Novelist and Amazon. A lighthearted adventure driven by books and the future of books, at its core the tale is about friendships both new and old and discovering what is truly important in life. We'll ask Mr. Sloan his thoughts on Clay and the rest of the characters, the future of books, and Google's ubiquitous presence in his entertaining story. Be here at 7pm on Tuesday to support this new author and show him a big crowd in Zionsville who enjoyed his book for our 2013 United We Read.
