Just the Facts

September 22, 2016 @ 6:30 pm

For their September book, “Just the Facts” Nonfiction Book Discussion Group will be reading The Great Beanie Baby Bubble: Mass Delusion and the Dark Side of Cute by Zac Bissonnette. How many Beanie Babies are you storing at your house? Confess. There was never a craze like those $5 beanbag animals with cute names like Seaweed the Otter. Suburban moms stalked UPS trucks to get the latest models, one sold for $10,000, and some people invested way too much money in them. Just as strange as this mass hysteria was the man behind it. Ty Warner devoted all his energy to creating what he hoped would be the perfect stuffed animal. Did he succeed? Why did people lose their minds over a stuffed animal? We will discuss this book on Thursday, September 22 at 6:30 pm.
