Discussion of Sabrina for the Adult Graphic Novel Club
We meet the 3rd Thursday of every month to discuss a different graphic novel!
Community Room A, 7-8pm
This month we'll be discussing Sabrina by Nick Drnaso, nominated for a Man Booker Prize!
“Conspiracy theories, breakdown, murder: Everything’s gonna be all right -until it isn’t
When Sabrina disappears, an airman in the U.S. Air Force is drawn into a web of suppositions, wild theories, and outright lies. He reports to work every night in a bare, sterile fortress that serves as no protection from a situation that threatens the sanity of Teddy, his childhood friend and the boyfriend of the missing woman. Sabrina’s grieving sister, Sandra, struggles to fill her days as she waits in purgatory. After a videotape surfaces, we see devastation through a cinematic lens, as true tragedy is distorted when fringe thinkers and conspiracy theorists begin to interpret events to fit their own narratives. “
