titleWednesday, September 2, 7 pm, Third Floor Seminar Room, Main Library

Evanston Public Library's Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Discussion Group will meet to discuss The Lions of Al-Rassan, by Guy Gavriel Kay.

In the dangerous lands of Al-Rassan, two men from different worlds meet and serve — for a time — the same master. Sharing their interwoven fate — and increasingly torn by her feelings — is Jehane, the accomplished court physician, whose own skills play an increasing role as Al-Rassan is swept to the brink of holy war, and beyond. 

Hauntingly evocative of medieval Spain, The Lions of Al-Rassan is both a brilliant adventure and a deeply compelling story of love, divided loyalties, and what happens to men and women when hardening beliefs begin to remake — or destroy — a world.

 

titleWednesday, August 5, 7 pm, Third Floor Seminar Room, Main Library

Evanston Public Library's Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Discussion Group will meet to discuss Old Man's War, by John Scalzi.

John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday.  First, he visited his wife's grave.  Then, he joined the army.  In a hostile universe where Earth is a backwater ripe for alien domination, the army doesn't want young people.  They want people with the knowledge and skills of decades of living.  So John will be given a new body, taken off Earth, and never allowed to return.  He'll serve two years in space, and if he survives, he'll be given a homestead of his own on a distant planet.   John Perry is taking that deal. He has only the vaguest idea what to expect. Because the actual fight, light-years from home, is far, far harder than he can imagine-and what he will become is far stranger.
