In August we'll discuss Too Like the Lightning by Ada Palmer:

In the 25th century, human civilization is divided into philosophical sects based on technologically generated abundance and inspired by the18th-century European Enlightenment. In this utopia, convicted felon Mycroft Canner serves his sentence by carrying out the orders of everyone he meets, while sensayer Carlyle Foster acts as a spiritual counselor in a world where organized religion has been outlawed. Their paths converge when they encounter Bridger, a young boy whose unusual abilities could destroy their hard-won world of peace and prosperity. -- Description by Gillian Speace (Novelist)

Meets on the third Wednesday of each month at Detour Coffee.
