The Guys Read Too book club: Human Acts

We're here. We're guys. We read the whole book.

The Guys Read Too book club is a men's reading group, designed for, and by, men who read.


The Guys are branching out this month with internationally renowned South Korean author Han Kang's work, HUMAN ACTS. 

ABOUT THE BOOK:
"In the midst of a violent student uprising in South Korea, a young boy named Dong-ho is shockingly killed. The story of this tragic episode unfolds in a sequence of interconnected chapters as the victims and the bereaved encounter suppression, denial, and the echoing agony of the massacre. From Dong-ho's best friend who meets his own fateful end; to an editor struggling against censorship; to a prisoner and a factory worker, each suffering from traumatic memories; and to Dong-ho's own grief-stricken mother; and through their collective heartbreak and acts of hope is the tale of a brutalized people in search of a voice. An award-winning, controversial bestseller, HUMAN ACTS,  is a timeless, pointillist portrait of an historic event with reverberations still being felt today, by turns tracing the harsh reality of oppression and the resounding, extraordinary poetry of humanity."

Rebel Heart Talks Books: Art VS Artist

Rebel Heart Talks Books: Art VS Artist

Rebel Heart Books welcomes you to our very first session of "Rebel Heart Talks Books" our forum for discussing current issues as they relate to our daily lives as readers and booksellers.

For this meeting, we will be discussing the challenges of separating art from artist. Following a wave of #MeToo announcements that rocked the book world, we were faced with a dilemma: should we remove the books created by these problematic authors from the shelves or not? Removing titles from shelves amounts to a type of censorship abhorred in the literature community, but selling their books amounts to supporting behavior that itself is abhorrent.

We are eager to discuss the question with our community and hope you will join us! 

Authors we will discuss include: Sherman Alexie, James Dashner, and Matthew Weiner.

Journaling as Self Care w/Beth Navarro

Your journal is your witness. It does exactly what it's supposed to do. It's there to bear witness to the good, to the bad and everything in between.  Journaling is a meditation and has become an integral part of my self care. It feeds my soul like a spiritual practice. Journaling is not just a way to record and remember. It's a way to process (And it will literally change your brain chemistry!).

In this class author, Beth Navarro, will teach and help you explore different ways to journal (It's not just limited to "Dear Diary") and how to use this as a regular practice in your self care routine.

Book Brave

Our Book Brave book club will be reading TOWNIE by Andre Dubus III for the month of March.

TOWNIE is our first memoir selection and tells the tumultuous coming-of-age story of a boy torn between the isolated world of academia and the rough streets of an economically depressed mill town in Massachusetts.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

"The clash of worlds between town and gown, between the hard drinking, drugging, and fighting of "townies" and the ambitions of well-fed students debating books and ideas, couldn't have been more stark or more difficult for a son to communicate to a father. Only by finally putting pen to paper himself did young Andre come into his own, discovering the power of empathy in channeling the stories of others-and ultimately bridging the rift between his father and himself. An unforgettable book, Townie is a riveting and profound meditation on physical violence and the failures and triumphs of love."

Romance Rebels

Romance Rebels

Led by bestselling romance authors, Megan Crane and Maisey Yates, the Romance Rebels book club is guaranteed to crack open your jaded heart, and maybe even change the way you think about romance.

SEA SWEPT, the first title in the Chesapeake Bay series by master of romance, Nora Roberts, is the selection for March.  

Like everything else, romance has been swept up in a wave of deep cultural conversation. Specific topics range from feminism & consent, to diversity & inclusion, to escapism & politics. For many, these conversations represent an opportunity to finally be seen in a genre they love. For others though, they look like a threat to something they've enjoyed for years.

Originally published in 1998, one might expect SEA SWEPT to be free from these anxieties of the new millennium. Instead, with its beautiful highlight on brotherhood and its classic Roberts female lead (fiercely independent and driven), SEA SWEPT proves that any genre can take a hard, empathetic look at the relevant, true-to-life challenges that we navigate as humans and citizens--some of them even political--and still find a satisfying happy ending.

Book Brave will be reading UP JUMPS THE DEVIL by Michael Poore for the month of February.

Recommended by one of our regulars, UP JUMPS THE DEVIL is an irreverent story of jilted love, starring none other than the Devil himself! Poore has been likened to Christopher Lamb, Terry Pratchett, Hunter S. Thompson, and Richard Brautigan, which means you can expect a blackly comedic, satirical exploration of what just might be the world's first breakup.
