Open Book Club: Apocalypticon by Clayton Smith

October 20, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

October’s Book Club selection is Clayton Smith’s spooky Apocalypticon!

Apocalypticon cover

Three years have passed since the Jamaicans caused the apocalypse, and things in post-Armageddon Chicago have settled into a new kind of normal. Unfortunately, that “normal” includes collapsing skyscrapers, bands of bloodthirsty maniacs, and a dwindling cache of survival supplies. After watching his family, friends, and most of the non-sadistic elements of society crumble around him, Patrick decides it’s time to cross one last item off his bucket list. He’s going to Disney World. 

This hilarious, heartfelt, gut-wrenching odyssey through post-apocalyptic America is a pilgrimage peppered with peril, as fellow survivors Patrick and Ben encounter a slew of odd characters, from zombie politicians and deranged survivalists to a milky-eyed oracle who doesn’t have a lot of good news. Plus, it looks like Patrick may be hiding the real reason for their mission to the Magic Kingdom…

Join us on Tuesday, October 20 at 6 pm to discuss the book with author Clayton Smith!
