This month's book is "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick.
A final, apocalyptic, world war has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending the majority of mankind off-planet. Those who remain, venerate all remaining examples of life, and owning an animal of your own is both a symbol of status and a necessity. For those who can't afford an authentic animal, companies build incredibly realistic simulacrae: horses, birds, cats, sheep . . . even humans.
We can follow this up with viewing of the 1982 film Blade Runner at another meeting if there's interest.
The meeting is currently scheduled to take place at my house. Fair warning, I have twin 9 month olds and 2 cats. If anyone knows of a better place to meet, I'm all ears, but for now this should work since there aren't many people who've RSVP'd.
Please bring book suggestions for October's meeting, along with any ideas for other get togethers.
