Sci-Fi Book Group: Rendezvous with Rama, by Arthur C. Clarke (Online meeting)

In the year 2130, an enormous celestial object appears outside the orbit of Jupiter. As it becomes clear that this is not an asteroid, astronauts launch a mission to rendezvous with Rama, as the object has been dubbed. As they get closer, images reveal a smooth surfaced cylindrical spaceship of highly intelligent design, promising first contact with an alien species.

Led by Marcy Maiorana. If you are new to the group and would like to participate, please email mmaiorana@minlib.net for instructions on how to join the Zoom meeting.

All Ages Book Discussion: Wonder, by R.J. Palacio

August Pullman is born with a facial deformity that prevents him from attending a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid —but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. Wonder begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include that of his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

All ages and families welcome!

Led by Jillian Holmberg. Please email framinghamlibrarybookgroups@gmail.com to participate.
