October selection: The Fifth Season.


Join us on Saturday, October 20 at 1:00 pm, or on Tuesday, October 23rd at 7:00 pm to discuss N. K. Jemisin’s Hugo award-winning novel The Fifth Season.

I’ve never really fallen in love with sci-fi (or fantasy, for that matter), but lately I’ve come to wonder whether that might not be because it was largely a boys’ club. Nora (that’s what the N stands for) is among a fresh wave of writers–writers of color, women, and LGTBQ, among others–who were previously ignored by the genre but are now creating some of the most compelling and exciting worlds for us to explore. I’m excited to read this book along with all of you! See you on the 20th or the 23rd!
