What we're about

Alright fellow nerds, let's get together to share our love of awesome scifi, fantasy and adventure novels!

How it works:

We're a pretty casual and diverse group who gets together on the 3rd Tuesday of every month for a fun and interesting discussion on the month's book selection. Some of us get there a little early to grab a bite to eat and socialize a little beforehand - it's okay if you skip this and arrive on time!

It is not required to finish the book (but be prepared for spoilers if you don't!) All that we ask is for you join us for a good time and treat everyone with respect.

Please note that if you are an author, you are more than welcome to join us but we do ask that you refrain from self-promotion.

We don't have any sort of formal discussion questions or structure and instead, we let the conversation flow naturally. Our discussions typically last around an hour and a half and then we will use the last half hour to come up with suggestions for our next book selection poll.

We select our books 2 months in advance and after suggestions have been made, we use an online poll to vote on our selections.

Virtual Book Club Event - July 2022

Come join us online to discuss this month's poll selection, The Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi!

Here is a short synopsis from Goodreads:

When COVID-19 sweeps through New York City, Jamie Gray is stuck as a dead-end driver for food delivery apps. That is, until Jamie makes a delivery to an old acquaintance, Tom, who works at what he calls "an animal rights organization." Tom's team needs a last-minute grunt to handle things on their next field visit. Jamie, eager to do anything, immediately signs on.

What Tom doesn't tell Jamie is that the animals his team cares for are not here on Earth. Not our Earth, at least. In an alternate dimension, massive dinosaur-like creatures named Kaiju roam a warm and human-free world. They're the universe's largest and most dangerous panda and they're in trouble.

It's not just the Kaiju Preservation Society that's found its way to the alternate world. Others have, too--and their carelessness could cause millions back on our Earth to die.
