Hoboken Public Library Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Discussion Group

The HPL Sci-Fi and Fantasy Book Discussion Group was started in January 2014 due to a library patron request. We read classic and new works of speculative fiction picked out by group members. Books discussed have included works by Larry Niven, Octavia Butler, George R.R. Martin, Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, Ray Bradbury, HG Wells, Catherynne M. Valente, and Isaac Asimov.

The group typically meets at 6 PM one Monday a month. We encourage new members. Before the discussion usually at 4 PM we screen a movie or TV adaptation of the book. When an adaptation is not available we watch related works or movies in a similar genre.

Email hplwriters@gmail.com to join the mailing list.

Meeting dates are subject to change–please see events calendar.
