The Browsers Speculative Fiction Book Club is led by Kathryn Herron and meets mostly monthly on Tuesday nights. We would like to extend an invitation to all of our sci-fi and fantasy loving customers (RSVP is not necessary). The books are available in store at 15% off if you plan to attend the book club.
If you have any questions about the event, please email Kathryn.
We will discuss The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin.
More about the book:
"At the end of the world, a woman must hide her secret power and find her kidnapped daughter in this 'intricate and extraordinary' Hugo Award winning novel of power, oppression, and revolution." (The New York Times)
This is the way the world ends...for the last time.
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.
