Book Group: A Psalm for the Wild-Built Next meeting on February 6 at 7pm
Our book group will be starting up again on Zoom! We will start the year reading the book A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers beginning January 16 at 7pm. We will be meeting the first and third Mondays of the month.
It's been centuries since the robots of Panga gained self-awareness and laid down their tools; centuries since they wandered, en masse, into the wilderness, never to be seen again; centuries since they faded into myth and urban legend.
One day, the life of a tea monk is upended by the arrival of a robot, there to honor the old promise of checking in. The robot cannot go back until the question of "what do people need?" is answered.
But the answer to that question depends on who you ask, and how.
They're going to need to ask it a lot.
Upcoming Meetings February 6th at 7pm February 20th at 7pm
Becky Chambers was raised in California as the progeny of an astrobiology educator, an aerospace engineer, and an Apollo-era rocket scientist. Her first novel, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, was originally funded via Kickstarter in 2012. Her books have been nominated for the Kitschies Award, the Hugo Award, the Locus Award, the Arthur C. Clarke Award and the Women's Prize for Fiction, among others, and won the Prix Julia Verlanger. After living in Scotland and Iceland, Becky is now back in her home state, where she lives with her spouse. She is a devotee of video and tabletop games, and enjoys spending time in nature. She hopes to see Earth from orbit one day.
Join us on the second Monday of the month for the next Pottstown Poetry Group Open-Mic.
“What happens at an open-mic poetry reading?” you ask. Great question! You can… • Read a favorite poem (or more than one if we have time) • Read a poem you wrote • Just sit back and listen to others reading poetry!
Bring a poem to read or come to just listen and the beauty of words with us.
