On Pointe Book Salon
Starting today, September 30th, ABSW begins hosting the On Pointe Book Salon, a new monthly club for book lovers of all kinds to meet up and talk about what they’re reading.
What makes On Pointe Book Salon different from other book clubs?
- OPBS is open to all people of all genders.
- Members of OPBS can read and discuss any book they like any month; there’s no “assigned reading.”
- All books and book fans are welcome: non-fiction, literature, science fiction, fantasy, romance, historical, horror, suspense, and more.
Sound like the kind of regular book event you’d be interested in? Come in for 7 PM tonight and check us out! Can’t make it tonight? Contact Sean for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep an eye on our website events page, blog, and Facebook for more information!
Glitter, Mayhem, Browncoats, and Time Lords!
On Friday, October 4th, from 7-9PM, ABSW is hosting a Glitter, Mayhem, Browncoats, and Time Lords party!
Guests include K. Tempest Bradford, Julia Rios, Jennifer Pelland, Susan Jane Bigelow, Lynne M. Thomas, and Michael Damian Thomas – winners and nominees of Hugos, Nebulas, and more. Also, cool kids to party with.
The books are Glitter & Mayhem, an anthology of short fiction that spans dance clubs and roller derbies leaving people covered in blood and sparkles; Whedonistas, a collection of women’s essays looking at pop culture mastermind Joss Whedon; Chicks Dig Time Lords, Chicks Unravel Time, and Queers Dig Time Lords, three anthologies that look at women’s and queer perspectives of the longest-running science fiction serial of all time, Doctor Who.
