Not your average book club…
Over three Monday nights in the month of July (and one Wednesday in August!), The Edge Book Club will discuss song lyrics, a well-known novel, an award-winning graphic novel, and a film, through the lens of Apocalypse.
But, hang on! We’re not talking about zombies and the end of the earth. We’re paring things back and taking a look at the root meaning of the word ‘apocalypse.
