Monday, July 30th, 2018 - The next meeting of CHATTINGERS, the Challengers Book Club, is for MY BOYFRIEND IS A BEAR by Pamela Ribon and Cat Farris, published by Oni Press.
Bear meets girl.
Nora has bad luck with men. When she meets an (actual) bear on a hike in the Los Angeles hills, he turns out to be the best romantic partner she's ever had! He's considerate, he's sweet, he takes care of her. But he's a bear, and winning over her friends and family is difficult. Not to mention he has to hibernate all winter. Can true love conquer all?
Through July 29th, we're offering MY BOYFRIEND IS A BEAR at 20% off! Then, on July 30th at 7pm, come back to hang out and chat with other fans about it! Snacks and cheap beer will be served.
