Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Club

Thursday, June 21 at 6:30 PM
All ages
No registration required

If you like Science Fiction and Fantasy, please feel free to join our book club as we read and discuss books from both genres, ranging from classics to newer works from a wide range of authors. Book is The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks: For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art–and he is the city’s most accomplished artist. For Azoth, survival is precarious. Something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he’s grown up in the slums, and learned to judge people quickly–and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint.
