All The Birds In The Sky by Charlie Jane Anders and Book Exchange

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Annual book exchange time! Please bring a book you liked wrapped to exchange with the group- a used book is completely fine- just something that you enjoyed and would recommend.

    We will meet up to talk about All The Birds In The Sky. This is a potluck, so please post what you will bring so we don't have a bunch of repeats. See you there! From the editor-in-chief of io9.com, a stunning novel about the end of the world--and the beginning of our future

    Childhood friends Patricia Delfine and Laurence Armstead didn't expect to see each other again, after parting ways under mysterious circumstances during middle school. After all, the development of magical powers and the invention of a two-second time machine could hardly fail to alarm one's peers and families.

    But now they're both adults, living in the hipster mecca San Francisco, and the planet is falling apart around them. Laurence is an engineering genius who's working with a group that aims to avert catastrophic breakdown through technological intervention. Patricia is a graduate of Eltisley Maze, the hidden academy for the world's magically gifted, and works with a small band of other magicians to secretly repair the world's every-growing ailments. Little do they realize that something bigger than either of them, something begun years ago in their youth, is determined to bring them together--to either save the world, or plunge it into a new dark ages.

    A deeply magical, darkly funny examination of life, love, and the apocalypse.
