Discuss SF & Fantasy-Related Media and a SF/Fantasy Novel (See Schedule Below)
WHAT, WHERE, AND WHEN There’s a book group in Forest Park (FP) that you can attend for interesting discussions of science fiction, fantasy, and similar works, as well as movies, TV shows, and news about science fiction and fantasy. It’s the Speculative Fiction Book Group, which meets the second Thursday of the month at 7 PM in the Forest Park Library (at Jackson and Des Plaines). You can join the Group’s discussions whether you’re from Forest Park or not. SCHEDULE OF MEETING DATES AND BOOKS TO BE DISCUSSED Oct 11 Humans, Bow Down by James Patterson Nov 8 Who fears death by Nnedi Okorafor Dec 13 Wolfsbane and Mistletoe by Charlaine Harris (Editor) Jan 10 Saturn Run by John Sandford and Ctein MORE INFO ON THE SPECULATIVE FICTION BOOK GROUP The Group does not have a librarian running its meetings. Instead, Group members conduct the meetings, and members choose titles for discussion. While you can buy the Group’s books before a meeting, they are also available at the FP Library. (You should call the Library (at[masked]) before coming in to pick up a book in order to make sure the books have arrived.) Or you can order the books yourself on library computer systems, such as SWAN. Two-hour on-street parking is available near the FP Library (which is at Jackson and Des Plaines), and Group meetings last less than two hours. So, come to the next meetup in Forest Park and join the friendly and lively discussion.(Note that you are welcome at a meeting even if you don't finish reading the book that is discussed at that meeting.) If you want more information about the Speculative Fiction Book Group you cansend a message to Walt L at this Meetup group.

What we're about

Oak Park needs more geek fun. I'm new to the area and looking to have a good time with fellow nerds. Want to do some gaming? Binge watch Doctor Who? Go see the latest sci-fi movie? Watch the Walking Dead together every week? Go see a nerdy burlesque show? Laser tag? Haunted houses? Hay rides? Picking apples? Whatever activity you guys want to do we can do.
