Graphic Novel Book Clubs

Graphic Novel/Comics Book Club
Over Easy by Mimi Pond - After being denied financial aid to cover her last year of art school, Margaret finds salvation from the straightlaced world of college and the earnestness of both hippies and punks in the wisecracking, fast-talking, drug-taking group she encounters at the Imperial Café, where she makes the transformation from Margaret to Madge. At first she mimics these new and exotic grown-up friends, trying on the guise of adulthood with some awkward but funny stumbles. Gradually she realizes that the adults she looks up to are a mess of contradictions, misplaced artistic ambitions, sexual confusion, dependencies, and addictions.
Copies of the book will be available at the Ashburn Information Desk. The Graphic Novels/Comics Book Club meets at Comic Logic, 44031 Ashburn Shopping Plaza, #281, Ashburn, VA. Sponsored by the Friends of the Ashburn Library.
