Come talk books with us! This month’s read – as selected by the group during our last meet-up – is Book Club: This is How You Lose The Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone. As always, we’ll provide a variety of snacks to munch on during the meet-up. We’ll close out the meeting by voting on next month’s book, so have your suggestions ready!
If you’re unable to purchase and/or borrow the book, we’ll have a copy available to read in the Arts and Craft Library.
This is a free event. To join, just read the book and show up at 7pm on Sunday, 10/27. That’s all there is to it!
Two time-traveling agents from warring futures, working their way through the past, begin to exchange letters—and fall in love in this thrilling and romantic book from award-winning authors Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone.
In the ashes of a dying world, Red finds a letter marked “Burn before reading. Signed, Blue.”
So begins an unlikely correspondence between two rival agents in a war that stretches through the vast reaches of time and space.
Red belongs to the Agency, a post-singularity technotopia. Blue belongs to Garden, a single vast consciousness embedded in all organic matter. Their pasts are bloody and their futures mutually exclusive. They have nothing in common—save that they’re the best, and they’re alone.
Now what began as a battlefield boast grows into a dangerous game, one both Red and Blue are determined to win. Because winning’s what you do in war. Isn’t it?
A tour de force collaboration from two powerhouse writers that spans the whole of time and space.
