Next Meetup

SF meetup: "Foreigner" by C. J. Cherryh (1994)
For our next book, we're reading "Foreigner" by C. J. Cherryh (1994). Foreigner is a first contact first book introducing readers to the Foreigner universe, in which she has written 19 novels and 2 short stories to date. Her novels in this universe are arranged into trilogy arcs, the most recent was "Emergence" published earlier this year. From Goodreads: > The first book in C.J. Cherryh's eponymous series, Foreigner begins an epic tale of the survivors of a lost spacecraft who crash-land on a planet inhabited by a hostile, sentient alien race. > > From its beginnings as a human-alien story of first contact, the Foreigner series has become a true science fiction odyssey, following a civilization from the age of steam through early space flight to confrontations with other alien species in distant sectors of space. It is the masterwork of a truly remarkable author. Come join us in reading Cherryh's work, and discussing what we love, hate or find intriguing about it. All are welcome!

What we're about

Let's get together anywhere and everywhere to read and discuss books. Be it a cafe or a park, a crime or a classic novel, poetry, essays, be it just 3 people or 20.. let's share our passion for books, literature and a good read!

“There is only one way to read, which is to browse in libraries and bookshops, picking up books that attract you, reading only those, dropping them when they bore you, skipping the parts that drag-and never, never reading anything because you feel you ought, or because it is part of a trend or a movement. Remember that the book which bores you when you are twenty or thirty will open doors for you when you are forty or fifty-and vise versa. Don’t read a book out of its right time for you. ”
