Join the museum’s book club for a discussion of Hard-Boiled Wonderland at the End of the World by Haruki Murakami (books available for purchase in the Museum Shop). Alternating between two parallel yet related narratives, this genre bending, surreal novel takes place in futuristic Tokyo. The odd numbered chapters tell the story of a human data processor working for a scientist experimenting with sound removal, while the even numbered chapters detail an unnamed narrator’s adventures as he learns to read dreams by studying unicorn skulls with the help of a librarian with an insatiable appetite. The discussion will conclude with a tour of Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose.
