“Serious” fiction tends to be set in real places, like Russia or Tokyo, while “genre” fiction is set in fictional worlds, like Arrakis or Middle Earth. In this group we’ll read stories that are set somewhere in between: made-up places in our own world.
Fall 2022/Spring 2023 reading groups will be announced this summer, and registration will open in July. Participation is reserved for Athenæum members. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Athenæum is deeply grateful to our wonderful volunteer leaders. Please note library reading groups are not classes or courses, but rather a way for individuals to discuss readings together, guided by both expert and amateur enthusiasts. Participants should expect discussion-based, not lecture-style meetings.
