You are welcome to bring a vegan snack (optional).
Coffee and tea will be provided.
**About the book:**
When Ariel Manto uncovers a copy of *The End of Mr Y* in a secondhand bookstore, she can’t believe her eyes. Copies are exceedingly rare, and everyone who has ever read it–including its author, Victorian scientist Thomas Lumas–has disappeared. Ariel can’t resist the promise in the book’s history and its pages, and so steps into a thrilling adventure of time, space, love, death, and everything in between.
“Smart, stylish and dizzying…with a breakneck thriller of a plot…Thomas writes with marvelous panache…She spins Derrida and subatomic theory into a wholly enchanting universe. Consider T*he End of Mr. Y* an accomplished, impressive thought experiment for the 21st century.” –New York Times Book Review
Hope to see you then!
