Time: 6pm-7pm
Location: Aldrich Room, Howe Library
This book discussion program is HYBRID. We will meet in the Aldrich Room, but you may also attend via Zoom. Email Tessa at for an invitation or more information.

Our first meeting will be Thursday, March 21st at 6:00pm.
This will be an introductory meeting, a chance to share what books everyone is interested in, and a discussion of future book group picks. If you haven’t read our first book, that’s ok! Come join the introductory discussion and share your thoughts for future book selections. 

Our first book will be The Deep Sky, by Yume Kitasei.
“The Deep Sky is an enthralling sci fi thriller debut about a mission into deep space that begins with a lethal explosion that leaves the survivors questioning the loyalty of the crew. They left Earth to save humanity. They’ll have to save themselves first.” 

What to Expect:

  • Engaging Discussions: Share your thoughts, theories, and questions with fellow spacefarers as we dissect the chosen book.
  • Diverse Perspectives: Our group welcomes readers of all backgrounds and experiences, ensuring a rich tapestry of viewpoints.
  • Community Building: Connect with like-minded individuals who share your passion for the extraordinary realms of science fiction.

Who Can Attend:
This Science Fiction Book Group is open to everyone! Whether you’re a library regular, a casual reader, or someone who just discovered the wonders of sci-fi, you’re invited to join our cosmic rendezvous.

Books can be checked out by any Upper Valley resident, regardless of library membership.

Mark your calendars, set your coordinates, and prepare for an odyssey of literary discovery! The future awaits, and we can’t wait to explore it together in the pages of captivating science fiction. See you at the next meeting!
