Genre fiction is one of the fastest-growing areas of modern literature, and science fiction and fantasy are quickly gaining ground in several mediums, whether on TV shows like Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, movies like Oblivion, Elysium, and Pacific Rim, or, yes, books, which provided the inspiration for many of these blockbuster phenomena. Join us for a monthly discussion of reads both modern and classic. Our current selection is The Long Earth, by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter. Stop by the Adult Services desk to sign up for the book club and pick up your copy. The discussion of the book will be held on Tuesday, December 17 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm at the Library.
