What we're about

Calling all ladies into Sci-Fi and Fantasy books! We read whatever takes our fancy so it could be epic fantasy, sci-fi, urban fantasy, angels, dystopian, jinnis, etc. Our regular meetings are approximately once a month always on Friday evenings in Henderson. Out of the passionate interests of our members, we have initiated many other events like board games night, escape rooms, movies, axe throwing, local conventions, trivia and so much more. In 2019, we anticipate our first road trip to Evermore Theme park in UT.

Dues are $8 per year, payable directly to the organizer. There is a 60 day "kick the tires, check out the Book Dragons" policy.

We have a great group of ACTIVE members. With this in mind, there will be no + 1s (plus ones) allowed unless previously cleared with the Organizer (feel free to PM me). We are about adult conversation and children at meetings are not appropriate.

Please familiarize yourself with our Attendance Policy found in our Discussion Boards:
UPDATED Attendance Policy (https://www.meetup.com/Womens-Sci-Fi-Fantasy-Book-Discussion-Social-Hour/messages/boards/thread/51684375)

We are a welcoming group of ladies who are into having fun and reading! Women nerds unite!

Book: Kings of the Wyld (The Band #1) by Nicholas Eames

Paymon's Mediterranean Café & Lounge

Clay Cooper and his band were once the best of the best -- the meanest, dirtiest, most feared crew of mercenaries this side of the Heartwyld. Their glory days long past, the mercs have grown apart and grown old, fat, drunk - or a combination of the three. Then an ex-bandmate turns up at Clay's door with a plea for help. His daughter Rose is trapped in a city besieged by an enemy one hundred thousand strong and hungry for blood. Rescuing Rose is the kind of mission that only the very brave or the very stupid would sign up for. It's time to get the band back together for one last tour across the Wyld. 544 Pages / Goodreads 4.36 ______________________________ We will meet on the restaurant side (not the hookah). The menu focuses on Italian, Greek and Middle Eastern specialties though also offers several specialties from India. Open til 1:00am.
