Our mid and late summer reading selections are here!  Kicking off in July is Jillian Tamaki’s graphic novel Supermutant Magic Academy on Sunday, July 2nd, and we continue our long term discussion of Saga of the Swamp Thing with volume 3 on Sunday, July 16th. Both meetings will be held at the shop at our usual meeting time of 6 PM, and all meetings are BYOB.  We highly, highly encourage you to preorder a given reading up to two weeks before the discussion date, and a reminder that we offer 15% off a given month’s title in the shop.

Below are our next two months of readings, and a photo and summary of July’s main title.

Jillian Tamaki is best known for co-creating the award-winning young adult graphic novels Skim and This One Summer, moody and atmospheric bestsellers. SuperMutant Magic Academy, which Jillian has been serializing online for the past four years, deftly plays superhero and high school Hollywood tropes against what adolescence is really like: the SuperMutant Magic Academy is a prep-school for mutants and witches but their paranormal abilities take a back seat to everyday teen concerns.
