Bean There, Read That: The Dead Fathers Club

Pick up a copy of The Dead Fathers Club by Matt Haig for the Tuesday July 28, 2015 7-8:30PM Bean There, Read That book discussion at The Classic Bean (21st and Fairlawn) for folks in their 20s and 30s!

A ghost story with a twist-a suspenseful and poignantly funny update of Hamlet A triumph of originality and humor, this clever novel by British author Matt Haig gives us Hamlet redux with an unforgettable voice all his own. When eleven-year-old Philip Noble is confronted by the ghost of his recently deceased father and asked to avenge his death, the boy finds himself in a thorny dilemma. Revenge, after all, is a tricky business-especially when Philip is already distracted by his girlfriend, school bullies, self-doubt, and all the other challenges of adolescence. Viewing the adult world through the eyes of a young boy, The Dead Fathers Club is a brilliant, quirky take on a classic tale.

If you are interested in reading this, you can pick up a copy at the previous month’s meeting or at the Reference Desk, first-come, first serve.

As always, plan to bring cash for drinks and food as we gather for this discussion.
