What we're about

Meet other apocalypse sci fi lovers over drinks at various bars in the bay area! Each month we will read a book with an apocalyptic setting picked by either one of the event organizers or voted upon by members.

Sign up to the group because the topic is relevant to past, present and future world events. Attend an event because these are some of the most interesting and intelligent people you will ever meet.

No shows will not survive.

Cheers!

Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro

Link visible for attendees

The novel is set in a dystopian future in which some children are genetically engineered ("lifted") for enhanced academic ability. As schooling is provided entirely at home by on-screen tutors, opportunities for socialization are limited and parents who can afford it often buy their children androids as companions. The book is narrated by one such Artificial Friend (AF) called Klara. Although Klara is exceptionally intelligent and observant, her knowledge of the world is limited.

This is her story of a sharply dividing world of hope, love, suffering and the people born into it.
