Join us at WindyCon for our November book club. We will be in Maple.
Saturday, November 12, 2016 @ Noon.
We are reading N.K. Jemisin’s The Fifth Season. Winner of the 2016 Hugo Award for Best Novel, this book promises to be fantastic.
THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS… FOR THE LAST TIME.
A season of endings has begun.
It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world’s sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun.
It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter.
It starts with betrayal, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester.
This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.
Join us for a lively discussion of Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Winning novel, The Man in the HIgh Castle.
From Goodreads: “It’s America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some 20 years earlier the United States lost a war, and is now occupied jointly by Nazi Germany and Japan.
This harrowing, Hugo Award-winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas. In it Dick offers a haunting vision of history as a nightmare from which it may just be possible to awake”
We’ll be meeting on Sunday, September 25, 2016, at 7:00 pm at our normal location:
Cosi 1740 Sherman Ave Evanston, IL
