Falls City Taproom Book Club: Catch-22
901 E. Liberty Street • 7-8:30 p.m.

The Falls City Taproom Book Club invites you to revisit classic books with the Falls City crew every third Wednesday of the month. Fifty years after its original publication, Catch-22 remains a cornerstone of American literature and one of the funniest—and most celebrated—books of all time. Set in Italy during World War II, this is the story of the incomparable, malingering bombardier, Yossarian, a hero who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy—it is his own army, which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service.


Saturday, February 23:
