As always, everyone is invited to come out to the IHOP in Lewisville and discuss the book YEAR ZERO by Rob Reid. You’re welcome whether you’ve read it, only part of it, know of it, or would like to read it. This month, Louis Barber will also be discussing with the rest of the group the next six months of titles, so bring suggestions.
The discussion begins at 7:30 PM in the back room of the IHOP. The IHOP is located at 2345 South Stemmons Freeway, Lewisville, 75067.
Low-level entertainment lawyer Nick Carter thinks it’s a prank, not an alien encounter, when a redheaded mullah and a curvaceous nun show up at his office. But Frampton and Carly are highly advanced (if bumbling) extraterrestrials. The entire cosmos, they tell him, has been hopelessly hooked on American pop songs ever since “Year Zero” (1977 to us), resulting in the biggest copyright violation since the Big Bang and bankrupting the whole universe. Nick has just been tapped to clean up this mess before things get ugly. Thankfully, this unlikely galaxy-hopping hero does know a thing or two about copyright law. Now, with Carly and Frampton as his guides, Nick has forty-eight hours to save humanity—while hoping to wow the hot girl who lives down the hall from him. ~Random House
