Octavia Books Science Fiction Book Club - May 2013

The Octavia Books Science Fiction Books Club will discuss John Crowley's masterful Little, Big, the epic story of Smoky Barnable, an anonymous young man who travels by foot from the City to a place called Edgewood—not found on any map—to marry Daily Alice Drinkawater, as was prophesied. It is the story of four generations of a singular family, living in a house that is many houses on the magical border of an otherworld. It is a story of fantastic love and heartrending loss; of impossible things and unshakable destinies; and of the great Tale that envelops us all. It is a wonder.

Note: By group consensus, this month's gathering was moved from Sat. morning to Sun. afternoon by group consensus. Generally, we meet at at 10:30 AM on the second Saturday each month. All book-lovers are welcome.
