Graphic Novel Book Group @ Central

This month the Graphic Novel Book Club will read and discuss The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage by Sydney Padua. In this rollicking alternate reality Victorian London's most dynamic duo, Charles Babbage, the unrealized inventor of the computer, and his accomplice, Ada, Countess of Lovelace, the peculiar protoprogrammer and daughter of Lord Byron, build the Difference Engine and then use it to build runaway economic models, battle the scourge of spelling errors, explore the wilder realms of mathematics, and, of course, fight crime - for the sake of both London and science.

Free and open to the public. Space is limited. Registration is required. To register click the button below or contact the library for assistance. Copies of the book will be available to pick up at the Circulation Desk of the Central branch.
