What we're about

Welcome to the Terry Pratchett Book Club. This group is a bi-monthly book club dedicated to the work of the late fantasy writer and satirist Terry Pratchett.

We will meet once every other month and discuss the next book that we read in roughly chronological order. Everyone will be given a moment to share their opinions before we open up to wider discussion. The aim to create a friendly, inclusive environment where people get together and share their love of Pratchett's fantastical work.

THE RULES

1) DON'T BE A BULLY.

This is a place for friendly discussion, not internet-style temper tantrums. If you have any issues with another member, please feel free to speak to me about it.

2) DON'T BE A CREEP

This isn't Tinder. Making new friends (or more) is the point of socializing, but if you make people feel uncomfortable or threatened then there's no place for you.

3) HAVE FUN

Discworld is a wonderful place to visit and I hope we will make new friends as we explore Pratchett's creations together.

This group is open to and affirming of all races, religions, backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender presentations, Death Avatars, Uberwaldians, Igors, Good Folk, Witches, Tourists, Old Barbarians, Whatever Nobby Is, Cowardly Wizards, Watchpeople, Assassins, Omnians, Vampires, Post Masters, and all others, so long as they obey the three rules above.

LIVE EVENT: The Fifth Elephant

Needs a location

DOING THIS LIVE ONCE AGAIN, HOPEFULLY COVID DOESN'T KILL MY PLANS A SECOND TIME

WE ARE GOING TO BE MEETING INDOORS AT THE FOOD COURT AT BROOKFIELD PLACE.

From the Amazon synopsis:

Everyone knows that the world is flat, and supported on the backs of four elephants. But weren't there supposed to be five? Indeed there were. So where is it?...

When duty calls. Commander Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork constabulary answers. Even when he doesn't want to. He's been "invited" to attend a royal function as both detective and diplomat. The one role he relishes; the other requires, well, ruby tights. Of course where cops (even those clad in tights) go, alas, crime follows. An attempted assassination and a theft soon lead to a desperate chase from the low halls of Discworld royalty to the legendary fat mines of Uberwald, where lard is found in underground seams along with tusks and teeth and other precious ivory artifacts. It's up to the dauntless Vimes -- bothered as usual by a familiar cast of Discworld inhabitants (you know, trolls, dwarfs, werewolves, vampires and such) -- to solve the puzzle of the missing pachyderm. Which of course he does. After all, solving mysteries is his job.
