This group is for those who embrace the philosophy that Nerds are awesome and all things Nerdy can be fun. I want this place to be an open forum for all, and everyone is welcome to invite the group to all their Nerdy events.
Time for another book club vote! Either send me a message or add a reply below :)
Here are your options:
- Everfair by Nisi Shaw
- The Winged Histories by Sofia Samatar
- Midnight Robber by Nalo Hopkinson
Some more info (pulled from various places):
"Everfair" explores the question of what might have come of Belgium's disastrous colonization of the Congo if the native populations had learned about steam technology a bit earlier.
"The Winged Histories" is about four women caught on opposite sides of a war. Using the sword and the pen, the body and the voice, they each struggle not just to survive, but to make history.
"Midnight Robber" is about a father and daughter thrust into the brutal world of New Half-Way Tree. A world where monstrous creatures from folklore are real, and the humans are violent outcasts in the wilds.
I'll close the vote on Monday 27th July 2020 and we'll have the book club on Saturday 29th August 2020 either online or in-person as the situation dictates.
See you then!
