Klava Klub to meet Wednesday
MARQUETTE — At 7 p.m. Wednesday, the Peter White Public Library will host a meeting of its science fiction book group, Klava Klub, at Contrast Coffee, located at 600 N. Third St., Marquette.
This month the club will discuss “Artemis: A Novel” by Andy Weir. Having lived on the lunar city or Artemis since she was 6-years-old, Jazz Bashara has one goal in life — to become rich — but working part-time as a porter and smuggler isn’t going to get her there. When the billionaire Trond offers her a million slugs to do some sabotage for him, she agrees, ignoring her better instincts. Only two-thirds successful, her actions set into motion events that threaten not only herself, her family and her friends, but also the city she loves.
Go to Contrast Coffee, grab a cuppa and discuss sci-fi novels old and new. There is no admission charge to attend. For more information, visit www.pwpl.info or call 226-4318.
