In January, we’ll discuss the novel Childhood’s End, by Arthur C. Clarke.
“Without warning, giant silver ships from deep space appear in the skies above every major city on Earth. Manned by the Overlords, in fifty years, they eliminate ignorance, disease, and poverty. Then this golden age ends–and then the age of Mankind begins….”
At the end of the meeting, we will choose a book for our March meeting.
