Welcome to the Science Fiction and Fantasy Reading Group of Jupiter (Florida, that is)!

If you live in the area, you know how big Palm Beach county is. So, the intention is to regularly meet in north Palm Beach County. We meet monthly at the Gardens Branch of the Palm Beach County Library system. We usually on the 1st Tuesday (sometimes the 2nd Tuesday).

We have been meeting since November 2013. We select books that have been nominated for awards in Science Fiction or Fantasy (Hugo, Nebula, Campbell, etc). Our focus is on recently published authors, but we occasionally select works from the 20th century.

By current consensus of the group, the organizer has been given the discretion to select the book. Selections are announced 1 to 2 months in advance. In a free forum, we discuss the book at the monthly meetup. Also, we make time for members to discuss other novels or authors that they can recommend.

Depending on what the group wants, we can change how we operate. It's a work in progress.
