Prince William County, VA, 06/24/2013)… Science fiction fans are invited to join Central Community Library’s Science Fiction Book Discussion Group on Saturday, July 20 at 2:30 p.m. Group members will discuss “Roadside Picnic” by Arkady & Boris Strugatsky. Participants meet on the third Saturday of each month at 2:30 p.m. to discuss a variety of titles from this popular genre.
Red Schuhart is a stalker, one of those young rebels who are compelled, in spite of the extreme danger, to venture illegally into the Zone to collect the mysterious artifacts that the alien visitors left scattered around. His life is dominated by the place and the thriving black market in the alien products. But when he and his friend Kirill go into the Zone together to pick up a “full empty,” something goes wrong. And the news he gets from his girlfriend upon his return makes it inevitable that he’ll keep going back to the Zone, again and again, until he finds the answer to all his problems.
New members are always welcome and no registration is necessary.
