Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut

This month's selection is Kurt Vonnegut's fourth novel, "Cat's Cradle."

Plot summary (from Written in 1963, Cat's Cradle centers on a young writer's quest to research the history of the atomic bomb, which leads to a bizarre political soap opera and apocalyptic showdown on the shores of a seedy banana republic in the Caribbean.

Our location: I've moved our meeting place to a more centralized spot.  Bourgeois Pig is a cafe that is a couple blocks east of the Fullerton Red Line stop. Parking may be difficult, but I believe there are pay lots in the area if you can't find street parking.  There will be a Meetup sign on our table, and I'll send attendees my cell number before we meet in case you can't find us.

Future book selection ideas are welcome.  Criteria for books: has a science fiction theme, be 10+ years old, and under 500 pages (for us busy, slower readers).

Please be respectful of the group and your humble organizer by keeping RSVPs up-to-date.  No-shows are no fun, so please don't be one, if you can help it. Two no-shows will have you removed from the group.

    Love the new location and love the fact that the members are so knowledgeable about sci fi -- I already downloaded Earth Abides that someone suggested last night. Good session. I'll plan to hang out for wine afterward next time.

    The new location was a much better choice. Thanks Mindy! Quieter and much more conducive to discussion. Now if only there was an aftermeetup...
