Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Discussion Group: Ancillary Justice

titleWednesday, April 1, 7 pm, Seminar Room, Main Library

Evanston Public Library's new Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Discussion Group will meet to discuss Ancillary Justice, by Ann Leckie.

Ancillary Justice is the winner of the 2014 Hugo and Nebula Awards for Best Novel.  It follows the soldier known as Breq, who is drawing closer to completing her quest on a remote, icy planet.  Once, she was a colossal starship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of soldiers.  Now, an act of treachery has ripped it all away, leaving her with one fragile human body, unanswered questions, and a burning desire for vengeance.  Copies of Ancillary Justice will be available at the Main Library, 2nd Floor, Reader's Services Desk.  This event is free and open to all.
