Minneapolis’ December Girly Book Club

Pizza Luce, 119 North 4th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55401, USA

Book Club Starts
December 16th at 7 PM



Note: Not only are we checking out a new venue, but we’re also playing a book exchange game! Please bring a wrapped, new or gently used book to participate.

In December to celebrate the holidays we’ll be holding a Dirty Santa Book Swap. Please bring a wrapped new or lightly read copy of your favorite book. You’ll then have the chance to unwrap a book or steal one from someone else who has already unearthed the best finds! You can only steal a book twice! Then it’s found it’s permanent home. Let the games begin.

 

This much-anticipated second collection of stories is signature Ted Chiang, full of revelatory ideas and deeply sympathetic characters. In The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate, a portal through time forces a fabric seller in ancient Baghdad to grapple with past mistakes and the temptation of second chances. In the epistolary Exhalation, an alien scientist makes a shocking discovery with ramifications not just for his own people, but for all of reality. And in The Lifecycle of Software Objects, a woman cares for an artificial intelligence over twenty years, elevating a faddish digital pet into what might be a true living being. Also included are two brand-new stories: Omphalos and Anxiety Is the Dizziness of Freedom.

In this fantastical and elegant collection, Ted Chiang wrestles with the oldest questions on earth—What is the nature of the universe? What does it mean to be human?—and ones that no one else has even imagined. And, each in its own way, the stories prove that complex and thoughtful science fiction can rise to new heights of beauty, meaning, and compassion

  1. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers| а
