COMING SOON

IN OTHER WORLDS... ONLINE!

Is your busy schedule keeping you from book club?  At the end of a long day, do the attractions of a glass of wine and your fuzzy Wookie slippers outweigh your desire to socialize?  Well, now you can have it ALL!

Starting in August, New City Library's "In Other Worlds" speculative fiction book group will be trialling an online version!  We'll be reading the same title as our August IRL ("in real life") meeting-- China Miéville's The City and the City-- but the discussion will follow a looser, less time-dependent format.  Participation in one group will NOT exclude you from participation in the other.  More details to come later this summer.

If you'd like to be notified when the online book group goes live, please email the group's coordinator, Librarian Karen Ostertag, at kostertag(at)newcitylibrary.org.

About In Other Worlds

is a speculative fiction book group that meets once a month to discuss a pre-chosen novel. Speculative fiction is the overarching genre the encapsulates science fiction, fantasy, horror, and any blending of the three. We are open to the public and encourage new members to stop in at any meeting. 

Meetings are held every third Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m.

The group is led by librarian Karen Ostertag. If you have any questions please call or e-mail 634-4997 x128 or kosterta (at) rcls.org.
