Sci-Fi / Fantasy Discussion Group
Date(s) - 04/17/2024
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Discussion Group was meeting via Zoom before it was cool! Lovers of science fiction and fantasy, at UUCPA and beyond, have been getting together online to talk about books, movies, and television episodes chosen by the group, every other month since early 2019. Past books include The Broken Earth Trilogy (N. K. Jemisin), The Moon is a Harsh Mistress (Robert Heinlein), Parable of the Sower (Octavia Butler), The Left Hand of Darkness (Ursula K. Le Guin), Red Moon (Kim Stanley Robinson); past television and movies include Arrival, Blink (Doctor Who), Serenity and The Train Job (Firefly), and The Day the Earth Stood Still.

We’ll discuss the 2011 movie “Super 8”, written and directed by JJ Abrams.

From Amazon:
“A group of young filmmakers in 1979 are immersed in a supernatural adventure after a train wreck unleashes an otherworldly creature.”

At the end of the meeting, we will choose a movie or video for our September meeting.
