Ender’s Game

The next book is Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. Please note that the meeting will be on the 22nd of November, which is the fourth Tuesday of the month as opposed to the normal third Tuesday. So you’ve got an extra week to read it!

Ender’s Game (1985) is a science fiction novel by American author Orson Scott Card.

Set in Earth’s future, the novel presents an imperilled humankind who have barely survived two conflicts…In preparation for an anticipated third invasion, an international fleet maintains a school to find and train future fleet commanders. The world’s most talented children, including the novel’s protagonist, Ender Wiggin, are taken at a very young age to a training center known as the Battle School. There, teachers train them in the arts of war through increasingly difficult games including ones undertaken in zero gravity in the Battle Room where Ender’s tactical genius is revealed.

See you at the meeting on Tuesday 22nd November!

MadLab may sometimes come across intimidatingly techy, a bit too geeky, too computer based, but actually it has also attracted a fair amount of book clubs. Sci Fiction Book Club, Skeptical Literature Book Group, MadGraphic Novel Group all still demonstrate interest that seems to go with the idea of a digital laboratory. Reading Groups in general are increasingly popular all over the country and there is a reason – through discussion more can be get out of a book than reading alone. A book club can mean a lot, it can go from simple discussion group to the idea of de-constructing literature. Three reading groups coming together in MadLab seem to have found their special focus. There hasn’t been much border crossing co-operation between these groups, but that could be something to plan for the future.
