Sci-fi and Fantasy book club for adults at the Central Library starts on Tuesday, 6 Oct from 6:45-8 PM

This is Middle Earth from space. Of course.

Lovers of Science Fiction and Fantasy rejoice! By popular demand (well, polite request, really), the Central Library is starting a sci-fi and fantasy book club for adults.


We're going to meet on either a Monday or Tuesday evening from 6:30 or 7 to 8. Please leave a comment saying what would be the best day and time for you. I'm thinking the first Monday or Tuesday because that's pretty easy to remember.

Hollywood might prefer that most mortals do not know or understand her secret world. It's the epicenter of global filmmaking and has, for a hundred years, created the moving images that define and preserve American culture.
