Speculative Book Club

[Due to the library's closure until May 17 all of our book clubs have gone digital. Contact the club leader for more info]

Second Tuesday each month | 7 PM | Meeting Room B

Like world-building fantasy? Eerie dystopias? Far-out sci fi? This club is for you! Have no idea what we’re talking about, but want to discuss weird books with cool people? This club is also for you!

Speculative Fiction, “an umbrella term for science fiction, fantasy, and several other subgenres of improbably what-ifs” (Karen Lord, 2016), is the basis for this book club. It meets at 7:00pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the library to discuss a different book and the genre as a whole. Email Leah with any questions: lnewton@lplks.org
