SATURDAY: The ACL Book Club A Confederacy of Dunces on Saturday July 11th at noon

Our next ACL Book Club selection is A Confederacy of Dunces, by John Kennedy Toole. We will meet on Saturday, July 11th at noon.  Loyal ACL volunteer Chris Weinmann, who has taught college courses on humor in American literature, will lead our discussion.  You’re not going to want to miss this session, folks!
About the book…from Wikipedia:
A Confederacy of Dunces is a picaresque novel by American novelist John Kennedy Toole which appeared in 1980, eleven years after Toole’s suicide. Published through the efforts of writer Walker Percy (who also contributed a foreword) and Toole’s mother, the book became first a cult classic, then a mainstream success; it earned Toole a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1981, and is now considered a canonical work of modern literature of the Southern United States.
