Join the Reading Under the Roof Cloud book club for a discussion of A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, the National Book Critics Circle Award and a Penn/Faulkner Award Finalist.

Aging punk-rocker and record executive Bennie stars along with his troubled young assistant, a kleptomaniac named Sasha. Nonlinear chapters shift between the past, present and future, introducing a host of supporting characters and revealing how time, often interpreted as the goon in the title, changes us all. The discussion will conclude with a tour of Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia. 

Copies of A Visit from the Goon Squad will be available for purchase in the Museum Shop.
