Included in Science Fiction Book Club
Weekly Club Meetings
Each month, readers devour a new book and a different science fiction genre. They’ll meet weekly to discuss the book, explore elements of the genre, and collaborate to brainstorm characters, worlds, and alternative realities as they learn to write sci-fi of their own.
Camaraderie & Collaboration
What’s better than reading science fiction? Discussing it with fellow sci-fi fans and concocting the next great story. Science Fiction Book Club members will find their flock by participating in lively discussions and dreaming up the greatest untold stories together.
Science Fiction StarCourses
Your young reader will be invited to our upcoming live Science Fiction StarCourses for the chance to learn directly from authors and actors who have carried the genre to new heights.
January: Space Exploration
We’re heading to space! Readers will explore one of science fiction’s most popular themes: exploring and colonizing space. Club members will discuss timeless questions, such as "Why do we love space so much?" and "What can it teach us about life back on Earth?"

February: Time Travel
Readers will jump into the past and the future as they examine how authors skillfully twist timelines.
