National Bosses Day

Are you a boss?

Or do you work for one?

Love 'em or hate 'em, bosses are a fact of life and have been a fixture of organized society since, well since we all gathered together to become organized.

To celebrate this year, Chapter2 Books is giving away a copy of Murder Your Employer: The McMasters Guide to Homicide. Simply stop by the bookstore between October 1 and October 15 to complete an entry form with your name, contact details, and 1 to 3 sentences on why you should receive a full scholarship to attend The McMasters Conservatory for the Applied Arts, “a fantasy academy laid out like a combination of Hogwarts, Downton Abbey, and a White Lotus–style resort” (Los Angeles Times) dedicated to the art of murder where students study how best to “delete” their most deserving victim.

Drawing to be held at 5:00PM on Monday, October 16, 2023.

The McMasters Conservatory for the Applied Arts is a Posion Ivy League university that teaches the art of assassination, or “deletion” as they call it. Students learn all the ways to kill and to avoid being killed, and the mandatory graduation thesis is getting away with the perfect murder. “If sensible people can kill themselves because life no longer seems worth living, then I suppose a sensible person might kill someone who makes other people’s lives unlivable, or who risks the lives of others.” Even though this book largely takes place in an academic setting and the entire plot is about learning how to properly murder, I wouldn’t classify this book as dark academia at all since it’s actually pretty lighthearted and there’s not really any mystery element involved. Murder Your Employer is quite funny (and punny) and clever, and definitely satirical at times. (Korynne Adkins, Columbus OH)
