For February’s Book Club we will be reading Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovitch. Probationary Constable Peter Grant dreams of being a detective in London’s Metropolitan Police. Too bad his superior plans to assign him to the Case Progression Unit, where the biggest threat he’ll face is a paper cut. But Peter’s prospects change in the aftermath of a puzzling murder, when he gains exclusive information from an eyewitness who happens to be a ghost.

“The perfect blend of CSI and Harry Potter.” –io9.com

At our January’s Book Club we discussed Sourdough by Robin Sloan. Sourdough is about self discovery and the courage to remake oneself. Also while being a somewhat quirky, Sourdough is a satirical look of start-up life in San Francisco. While it was light on the Science Fiction and Fantasy there was a bit of magical realism and speculative fiction angles to make Sourdough a fast enjoyable read.

When: February 12th, 6:30 PM – 7:30PM
Where: Open Books 651 W. Lake St. Chicago, IL 60661
