Author Robin Sloan comes to the North Branch Book Club to answer our questions about his first novel Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, already a modern classic. The book is a comic fantasy about literary obsession and the 21st Century tension between paper and pixels. It is a book to savor and this is a conversation that you won’t want to miss! Copies available to borrow at North Branch.
