"Nerds. Once a tortured subrace of humans condemned to hiding in dark corners from the brutal hand of social torment... now, captains of industry!" - Chris Hardwick

This is a book club for those of you who are interested in the kind of books that explore all of the great themes of science fiction, fantasy and horror -- like what, exactly, happens to the bourgeoisie in a zombie apocalypse (hint: they taste just like everyone else). We'll read everything from your bog standard literary novel to graphic novels, and maybe the occasional non-fiction nerd memoir (or "nermoir").

Our monthly meetings consist of 30 minutes of introductions, followed by a guided 1 hour group book discussion. Members are free to hang out after the discussion, and, you know, be all social and stuff.

Once or twice a month, we will also attend movie screenings and other nerdtastic events in and around OC and LA. If you have any event suggestions, let one of the organizers know!
