BOOK EXCHANGE | Sunday, June 4

This upcoming Sunday, from 3:30-6pm, we'll be open for checkouts and returns as usual. The discussion part of the event, though, will be a little different...

Around 4:30pm, we'll begin streaming the first episode of the new TV show American Gods, adapted from Neil Gaiman's 2001 novel. Afterwards we'll have a short discussion.

For those who haven't read the novel or watched the show yet, see a trailer for American Gods with Chinese subtitles (contains spoilers) here.

The book (and show) blends mythology with a modern-day American sensibility. A Rolling Stone article called it '2017's Trippiest TV Show,' if that gives you any idea of what's in store.

If you're not interested in American Gods, you can still check books in and out normally for the duration of the event. Either way, hope to see you on Sunday!
