We will be discussing The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood at Family Restaurant. It's an Italian restaurant on the south side of Queens Blvd. at the corner of 73rd Rd., a short walk west from the 75th Ave. stop on the E and F trains.
This book is the second in a trilogy; the first is Oryx & Crake and the third is MaddAddam. It is a stand-alone (i.e. you don't have to read the other book to make sense of The Year of the Flood) but of course you can, or you can read a summary here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oryx_and_Crake. Although it was published first, the action of Oryx & Crake and the events in The Year of the Flood is concurrent.
