"If we write about the past or the future, even an imaginary past or unlikely future, we’re always really writing about the present."
We meet second Thursday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in the Remainder room to discuss our fantasy selection, and at 7:30, same place, to discuss the sci-fi book for that month.
The books we've read have ranged from Military Science Fiction like "The Forever War" by Joe Haldeman to classics like "Foundation" by Isaac Asimov or "A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeline L'Engle. We don't always choose the best books. In fact, some of our best discussions have been about the ones we all passionately hate. We pick a bunch of books to vote on and then select 5-6 for the upcoming months.
If you are interested in meeting some geeky people who like Science Fiction (and Fantasy), by all means drop by! No RSVP needed. Any questions, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
