Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Club #83

winged_histories

At August’s Book Club we will be reading The Winged Histories by Sofia Samatar. The Winged Histories was published after A Stranger in Olondria, though Samatar considers it a “companion volume” rather than a sequel. In it, four women — a soldier, a scholar, a poet, and a socialite — are caught up on opposing sides of a violent rebellion. As war erupts and their loyalties and agendas and ideologies come into conflict, the four fear their lives may pass unrecorded. Using the sword and the pen, the body and the voice, they struggle not just to survive, but to make history.

At July’s Book Club we read Barsk: The Elephants’ Graveyard by Lawrence M. Schoen. Mixed reviews on this, even from individual readers, but overall we concluded it’s fun but flawed.

When: Monday, August 8th, 2016 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Where: Filter Cafe 1373-75 N. Milwaukee Ave
