What we're about

This book club is for fans of funny fantasy and science fiction. We started with Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, and we will be broadening our reading choices in 2020 to encourage participation and new readers. We will continue to read Pratchett, too.

The group is open to anyone 21+ who is willing to talk about a humorous novel with some other people who also maybe read/started/looked at that month’s book. We meet at a local food or drink place one weekend afternoon a month.

You are always welcome -- even if you haven’t read the book yet. We vote on the next books at the end of each meeting.
