As the Worm Turns

The As the Worm Turns Book Group will discuss Dear Fahrenheit 451, Love and Heartbreak in the Stacks: A Librarian’s Letters and Breakup Notes To The Books In Her Life by Annie Spence (Flatiron, $19.99). If you love to read ... you know that some books affect you so profoundly they forever change the way you think about the world. Some books, on the other hand, disappoint you so much you want to throw them against the wall.  Librarian Annie Spence has crafted love letters and breakup notes to the iconic and eclectic books she has encountered over the years. From breaking up with The Giving Tree (a dysfunctional relationship book if ever there was one), to her love letter to The Time Traveler's Wife (a novel less about time travel and more about the life of a marriage, with all of its ups and downs), Spence will make you think of old favorites in a new way. : Erin Duerr will facilitate the discussion.
