      EVENT DETAILS
      Graphic Novel Book Club with Jake Mumm

      From the caves at Lascaux to the VR booths at Comic Con, we have always told stories with pictures. Graphic novels continue that human tradition in a surprising variety of styles and in every genre imaginable. This book club will read the latest books, though maybe not too many featuring crime fighters or mutants. We're led by Jake Mumm, one of the founders of Comic Arts Los Angeles.       Back to our normal schedule in August (3rd Monday), we're reading another adaptation of a classic: Octavia Butler's Kindred. This time travel story has a young African-American woman regularly slipping back into the time of her white, slave-owning ancestor whenever he is in danger. To save the present, she must save the past -- but it takes a heavy toll.        HOW IT WORKS: All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator - to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore. You can get your ticket one of two ways: either thru the link on this page (*we'll ship the book to you!) - OR buy your ticket in the store, just look for our book club display (near the book tunnel). *If you choose the on-line option (the one with shipping), please send a mailing addy to larkin.lastbookstore@gmail.com -- Do not try to pick up the book in person.   Jake Mumm is a co-founder and organizer of Comic Arts Los Angeles, a festival of independent comic creators from around the country. He is passionate about community building at the local level and enjoys learning about Los Angeles, its history and people.
