Graphic Novel Bookclub: Sabrina
21 November 2018 19:00 - 21:00
Librairie Drawn & Quarterly
211 Rue Bernard O, Montréal, QC H2T 2K5
Each month we host a Graphic Novel Book Club meeting, open to all, during which we hang out and informally discuss a featured graphic novel. Our pick for November is Sabrina by Nick Drnaso. We will meet at La Petite Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (176 Rue Bernard Ouest) on Wednesday November 21 at 7 p.m. The discussion will be hosted by Librairie Drawn & Quarterly staff member Saelan Twerdy. Join us for refreshments and collective insights!
Following a series of characters tied together by a woman’s disappearance and its aftermath, in which a senseless murder becomes fodder for conspiracy theories circulated by a talk-radio demagogue, Sabrina is a masterful, unsettling snapshot of contemporary America’s climate of alienation, isolation, and misinformation. Hailed by Zadie Smith as “the best book—in any medium—I have read about our current moment,” Sabrina is the first graphic novel ever to be nominated for the Man Booker prize and is likely to become a touchstone of our fake news era.
***We are offering a 20% discount on Sabrina from now until the meeting date!***

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly would like to acknowledge that our events and bookstores are located on the unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. Many of us refer to Montreal as our home, but it is named Tiohtiá:ke. It has always been a gathering place for many First Nations and continues to be home to a diverse population of Indigenous peoples. We are grateful that creating and sharing stories has been a part of this land for thousands of years. As an organization that believes in inclusivity, we believe that it is important to think about how each and every one of us has arrived here, in this space.
