Strange Lands Book Club: "The Memory Police"
This book club meets on the third Wednesday evening of the month for informal discussions on a wide range of science fiction titles voted on by participants.
On an unnamed island off an unnamed coast, things are disappearing. First, animals and flowers. Then objects--ribbons, bells, photographs. Then, body parts. Most of the island's inhabitants fail to notice these changes, while those few imbued with the power to recall the lost objects live in fear of the mysterious 'memory police,' who are committed to ensuring that the disappeared remain forgotten. When a young novelist realizes that more than her career is in danger, she hides her editor beneath her floorboards, and together, as fear and loss close in around them, they cling to literature as the last way of preserving the past.
Until further notice, this book club will meet virtually on Zoom.
New members are always welcome. You don't have to read the book to join, but it is encouraged.
