The Rivendell Discussions are monthly discussions of fantasy in the traditions of the Inklings (Tolkien, etc) and more recent writers like Ursula K Le Guin, Patricia McKillip, Lois McMaster Bujold, and many others, on a Saturday afternoon at the Southeast Library in Dinkytown. We are affiliated with The Mythopoeic Society, (mythsoc.org) which shares these interests. More at rivendellergroup.com, or on Facebook.
Meanwhile, our sister/cousin discussion group, Second Foundation, holds discussions of SF (Science fiction, or "speculative fiction) with sometimes overlapping membership, usually on Sunday afternoons, typically about every 6 weeks, usually at Parkway Pizza on Minnehaha, in Minneapolis--sometimes, notably in December, in a private home. See the fliers for both groups posted in the "photos" section for more up-to-the-minute info and contacts.
