Classics of Science Fiction Book Club

{ 2023-24 Season }  

The Classics of Science Fiction book club reads a variety of books that are, should be, could be, or might (arguably) one day be considered classics of the science fiction genre. We typically meet the third Thursday of the month at 7pm, though meeting dates are subject to change. Click here to sign up for the mailing list through which you will receive monthly email reminders about meeting dates, books, reviews, and other relevant information.

Meetings are online only, until further notice. To participate, email '' and request the meeting link.

If you'd like to automatically order the books from Ada's in advance of our discussions, you can sign up for the book subscription here.
