Geeks, Books & Coffee
Monday, June 25 • 6:00 pm • Station Community Room

Join the library book club that is going to discuss all things geek culture. Books and comics are being turned into Movies & TV shows at a rapid pace, and we can’t get enough of them. Let’s binge together through the Nerdosphere! Every two months we will explore a particular theme that is of interest to the group. Starting off, the club will be discussing books that are headed to Film and TV screens near you! Come for an adventurous discussion of books, comics, TV and film and yes there will be coffee!   The Alienist is the first foray into fiction by military and diplomatic historian Caleb Carr. This novel is set in 1896 at the advent of the psychological investigator. Dr. Kreizler is a psychologist who is often shunned by colleagues and polite society due to his unique views regarding the mentally ill. However, it is Kreizler Theodore Roosevelt, the police commissioner, turns to when a serial killer begins targeting New York's poor, immigrant children. With the help of his good friend, reporter John Schuyler Moore, a police secretary, and a pair of police detectives, Kreizler will use a psychological profile to track and catch the killer. The Alienist is a psychological thriller with a mix of true history that leaves the reader not only entertained, but fascinated by the rich detail drawn from reality.  Registration required. HPL cardholders only.
