Women from Other Worlds
Women From Other Worlds Book Club explores the contemporary work of female authors of fantasy and sci-fi. Historically underappreciated in the genre, these writers are now doubtlessly some of its greatest leaders.
This month we are reading Victories Greater Than Death by Charlie Jane Anders. The Women From Other Worlds book club will meet at 5 PM, on Monday, February 27.
Tina never worries about being ‘ordinary’—she doesn’t have to, since she’s known practically forever that she’s not just Tina Mains, average teenager and beloved daughter. She’s also the keeper of an interplanetary rescue beacon, and one day soon, it’s going to activate, and then her dreams of saving all the worlds and adventuring among the stars will finally be possible. Tina’s legacy, after all, is intergalactic—she is the hidden clone of a famed alien hero, left on Earth disguised as a human to give the universe another chance to defeat a terrible evil.
But when the beacon activates, it turns out that Tina’s destiny isn’t quite what she expected. Things are far more dangerous than she ever assumed. Luckily, Tina is surrounded by a crew she can trust, and her best friend Rachael, and she is still determined to save all the worlds. But first she’ll have to save herself.
Purchase a copy to read, or grab it from the library, and join us for discussion at Dog-Eared Books at 5 PM, on Monday, February 27. This book club is free to anyone who wishes to participate, no registration necessary.
