What we're about

The Geek Partnership Society is a completely volunteer-run non-profit by and for geeks. We build community with year round clubs and events; support educational outreach programs bringing science into schools, rec centers and libraries with Project Lighthouse; and provide support for our local geek partners Convergence Events, Anime Twin Cities, and others with the world's only geek community center (Event Horizon) in Northeast Minneapolis, MN.

Some of our clubs have their own Meetup groups; check them out under our Sponsor list (to the left).

Read the Book / See the Movie

Needs a location

The GPS Read the Book/See the Movie club was the first club for GPS (then MiSFiTS), with the goal to expand our reading and film horizons by comparing and contrasting films to their source material. The club has become an education in literary and film history as well as an education in how the film industry adapts written material.

We meet on the second Friday of every month. Social time at 7:00 pm – movie beings promptly at 7:30 pm. Our gathering location rotates between Event Horizon (aka the Waterbury Building) and among club members’ homes. Feel free to bring a snack to share!

For the meetup location or if you have any questions about the club, please email organizers at [masked] .
