Atomic Reading Club 2018 - Generations
Do you believe in Millennials? Is it true that GenX is really the coolest generation? Are there definitive generational traits or is it merely stages of life we all go through? Does history really repeat itself? We're not really sure the answers to these questions, though we have some thoughts on the subject. We're also nervously uncertain where 2018 will take us, but we figured that looking at generations might help put the times we live in into perspective. Or not.

* We'll be reading the first 18 issues of Saga. You can read them however you like, this one large hardcover, the first 3 volumes of the trade paperbacks or the single issues.
** iGen is scheduled to be out in paperback with a cover price of $17 in September.
This year, due to the expense of some of the books, we'll be offering a 25% discount to reading club members off the books we're reading. Just make sure to tell the bookseller that you're getting the book for the Atomic Reading Club to get the discount.
Discussions are always the last Tuesday of the month, 7pm, in Eightbar. Happy hour prices on beer & wine to reading club members.
