This new three-part book club will allow fantasy fans to discuss new worlds and novels with like-minded readers.

 

You’re welcome to attend one session, or as many meetings as you like, but we encourage you to attend monthly so as to be able to better contribute to discussion. Spoiler Alert: If the group will be discussing the first book in a series, be prepared to hear a few spoilers during meetings, as group discussions will likely cover the entire series. For the January meeting, the group will discuss the Folk of the Air trilogy (The Cruel Prince, The Wicked King and The Queen of Nothing). All meetings will be held in the Library conference room from 17h00-18h30.

 

For the January meeting (Folk and Faeries), participants are asked to read the following books before meeting on Saturday 25 January:
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

 

For the February meeting (fractured fairy tales), participants are asked to read the following books before meeting on Saturday 29 February:
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly

 

For the March meeting (fantasy in the modern world), participants are asked to read the following books before meeting on Saturday 28 March:
The Story of Owen by E.K. Johnston
Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older
