Announcing a new Meetup for Interesting Readings!
What: Interesting Readings - March
When: Monday, January 31, 2011 7:00 PM
38 East Gay Street
West Chester, PA 19380
Interesting Readings: a book club for the best in sci-fi, from quirky classics to fresh indie! Monthly meetings will be held in the West Chester area.
Our March book will be Paolo Bacigalupi's 2010 Hugo Award winner THE WINDUP GIRL. Noted short story writer Bacigalupi (Pump Six and Other Stories) proves equally adept at novel length in this grim but beautifully written tale of Bangkok struggling for survival in a post-oil era of rising sea levels and out-of-control mutation. Capt. Jaidee Rojjanasukchai of the Thai Environment Ministry fights desperately to protect his beloved nation from foreign influences. Factory manager Anderson Lake covertly searches for new and useful mutations for a hated Western agribusiness. Aging Chinese immigrant Tan Hock Seng lives by his wits while looking for one last score. Emiko, the titular despised but impossibly seductive product of Japanese genetic engineering, works in a brothel until she accidentally triggers a civil war.
We'll meet at Teca in West Chester (38 East Gay Street) on 3/16 @ 7pm.
