January meeting

Posted in meetings at 9:51 pm by åka

The next meeting is scheduled for January 8, at 7 PM. We will read The Summer Tree by Guy Gavriel Kay. It is hopefully easy enough that we will all be able to finish it before the meeting, but we would like to emphasize that it’s ok to participate even if you haven’t read the book (but be prepared for spoilers). For information about the location and anything else, send an email to fearlessfantasy_at_gmail.com.

The previous meeting was attended by only two of the members. We would be very happy for new people who would like to join us!
