The Sub-Genre-O-Rama Book Club is hosted by the Durham County Library and meets at the Southwest Regional Library, says librarian Patrick Holt.
Tell us about your club. The club formed in the spring of 2014. We select books that fit niche readerships, books that cross genre lines in interesting or unexpected ways, and books that are just plain weird. The club is open to the public, not just Durham residents.
What are you reading now? “Neuromancer” by William Gibson
What is your club’s favorite book? A tie between “The Golem and the Jinni” by Helene Wecker and “Maplecroft” by Cherie Priest
What’s unique about your club? What makes our club unique is the books we read, each of which falls into more than one genre or fiction category or off the charts altogether. Although they usually skew into the fantastic or science-fictional, you’ll also find mystery, romance, horror, historical, and much more in the mix. We are also organized as a meetup. You can find our full list of selections on the meetup page.
