Alison has been with the library for ten years and is the resident Children's Librarian. She hosts Preschool Storytime every Tuesday at 10am and Baby Boogie every Wednesday at 930. She also moderates the Blum House Book Club, currently reading Orange is the New Black for the September meeting. Alison's pick is A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole.
"They said I could only write one paltry sentence about one of the most amusing, quixotic, off the wall, satirical books (complete with horribly tragic author back story) that has ever been penned, so forgive the abysmal grammar you are about to be assaulted with, but A Confederacy of Dunces is a masterclass in character and I appreciate it so much that it's one of the few books I re-read; after all these years it still makes me laugh out loud, if it doesn't make you laugh, Ignatius would say, in a typically grandiose fashion, that you are an affront to both theology and geometry...just try this book if you have a slightly warped sense of humour or if you want to check out what won the Pulitzer in the year I was born, ok?"
