Join us to discuss the 1966 book "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash" by Jean Shepherd.

About this month's title:

A collection of humorous and nostalgic Americana stories--the beloved, bestselling classics that inspired the movie A Christmas Story.

Before Garrison Keillor and Spalding Gray there was Jean Shepherd: a master monologist and writer who spun the materials of his all-American childhood into immensely resonant--and utterly hilarious--works of comic art. In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash represents one of the peaks of his achievement, a compound of irony, affection, and perfect detail that speaks across generations.

A limited number of physical copies of the selected title are available in advance at the Belt Branch for check out.

This program is for adults 18+.
