Howdy! The USF Book Club picked its next two selections:
Friday, February 17, 2012 (12-1 pm): Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
How to get the book: Request it through Link+ (it’s in high demand right now, so you might need to get creative with how you request it — large print, as a double edition, etc.), get it at SF Public, or check out our Kindle or one of our iPads to read it digitally.
Meet us in the seminar room of Gleeson Library (#209)
Friday, March 16, 2012 (12-1 pm): The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
How to get the book: Request it through Link+ or get it at SF Public. Unfortunately it is not available in e-format.
Since we like to read books of all genres, we decided to do a children’s book, and that’s why we chose Hugo Cabret, considering the recent attention the book has received due to the movie.
For this meeting, we’ll be on the third floor of the library — room 314.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close had a wonderful premise and a unique and engaging young boy, but for me, did not fully deliver, it left me feeling unsatisfied. I would like to recommend ‘Graffiti on My Soul’ as another path to dealing with trauma, one that will leave an enduring mark in your life.
thanks for the rec, Johanna!
