What we're about
Upcoming events (3)
We're changing things up a little this month, we're going to run our Graphic Novel Club on a separate night from our Book Club. And hey, if you are not local to the group take advantage of our online offerings and feel free to join. For the month of June we will be reading Coda Volume 1 by Sumon Spurrier. Simon Spurrier ( The Spire, Godshaper ) and Matias Bergara ( Cannibal, Supergirl ) present a broken fantasy world that's far from perfect for fans of Mad Max and The Lord of the Rings. In the aftermath of an apocalypse which wiped out nearly all magic from a once-wondrous fantasy world, a former bard named Hum (a man of few words, so nicknamed because his standard reply is :hm") seeks a way to save the soul of his wife with nothing but a foul-tempered mutant unicorn and his wits to protect him...but is unwillingly drawn into a brutal power struggle which will decide forever who rules the Weird Wasteland. The meeting link will be posted here a couple days before the event.
For our next Netflix Viewing Party we're going to watch a classic, Back to the Future! We'll join that time traveling duo Doc Brown and Marty McFly as they accidentally end up in 1955, where they repair history while trying to get back home. And the neat thing about Netflix Party is commentary is WELCOME, good and bad. It's like we have our own Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode without the silhouettes in the corner.

Check here Friday night around 6:55pm for the party link.
June is always our bridesmaid month, where we take all the runner ups from the previous five months and pick a winner out of that group. This month we will be reading Stardust by Neil Gaiman. Young Tristran Thorn will do anything to win the cold heart of beautiful Victoria—even fetch her the star they watch fall from the night sky. But to do so, he must enter the unexplored lands on the other side of the ancient wall that gives their tiny village its name. Beyond that old stone wall, Tristran learns, lies Faerie—where nothing, not even a fallen star, is what he imagined. We'll post up the meeting link a couple days ahead of time.
