For the first Epic book club of the Book Year, we're reading the Wayfarers trilogy, by Becky Chambers: We will be discussing:
1. The Long Way to a Small, Angry, Planet
2. A Closed and Common Orbit
3. Record of a Spaceborn Few

In the future, humanity explores the far reaches of the stars and finds community. Whether they find it with aliens or among themselves, this Hugo award-winning series explores the many meanings of learning to be "human."
We will be meeting at Long Island Mike's pizza so bring your appetite.
We hope to see you there!
