A Book Club Photo Diary

On Monday, August 13, the Gapers Block Book Club met to talk about Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. It was our 27th book club discussion and one of our biggest groups yet. GB staffer Daniel X. O'Neil joined us to document the event.

The place.

The book.

Introducing ourselves.

Lots of laughs.

Happy readers.

Engaged in discussion.

The real sideshow circus performers.

More laughs.

The view from the book shelves.

See you next month!

All photos are by Dan X. O'Neil. You can view these and many more photos from the event on Flickr.
