Our penultimate book of the year! This month we move from “realistic” fantasy (is there really such a thing?) to high fantasy. Our second-to-last book is The Magician’s Nephew, by C.S. Lewis. This book is part of the Chronicles of Narnia, sometimes listed as Book 1, sometimes as Book 2, and sometimes as Book 6. In any case, it takes place before The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. If you’ve read that one, you’ll probably make lots of connections as you read. Many questions are answered.
We saw four different covers when we passed out books last week. Here’s another one to ponder.
We might have a special guest this month. But maybe not. I’m not promising anything.
Also, I’d like to have this year’s guys help pick one book for next year. Be thinking of a book or two, and we’ll discuss the choices at our meeting. Then I’ll throw a poll up here on the blog.
See you soon! Keep reading!
Meeting: Thursday, April 29, 6:30-7:30 pm
