Sci-fi book discussion group reading schedule



Below is a schedule of upcoming readings for the Western MA Sci-Fi book discussion group. Jen is the organizer of the book club. We meet in Northampton, roughly every other month, usually on the 4th Thursday of the month at 6:30pm.


We are currently open to new members, so feel free to spread the word. There is a cap for the number of attendees at each particular book discussion, so please RSVP if you plan to come, and if you find out you can't make it then update your RSVP as soon as possible so that others have a chance to attend.


If you have any questions or suggestions or want to recommend books for us to read/discuss in the future, visit my page and click on 'Message' to contact me.
