The Chicago Nerd Social Club’s Science Fiction/Fantasy Bookclub is open to new science fiction and/or fantasy readers as well as die hard fans. We are a diverse group of readers of various ages and backgrounds, meeting once a month for book discussions. Our discussions tend to range across various topics, comparisons to other novels, science, history, politics, religion, and philosophy, with that being said we often segue into other non related topics as well.
The bookclub is held on the second Monday of the month, 6:30PM – 7:30PM, on Zoom, please reach out for more information. Next month’s book selection is voted on by current month attendees but even if you didn’t finish the current book please stop by and help us choose our next book.
Please keep in mind that all CNSC-affiliated events are governed by our Anti-Harassment Policy and that we are guests of our awesome hosts, Open Books.
For May's Book Club we will be reading The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab.
France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever—and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.
Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.
But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.
We host the Book Club meeting via a private Zoom meeting, please reach paul @ chicagonerds.com for an invite.
