This pop-culture group covers books, movies, music and trends, meeting each month to discuss different topics and themes with ties to science fiction and fantasy.
We meet at the library at 7 PM on the first Monday of every month September through May. See below for current topics, and check out our events calendar for upcoming themes!

We love ALL of the Star Trek captains: Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway and Archer, because they have what it takes to command. But with so many different captains, there are so many different opinions as to who the best one really was. Come share your opinion and some special Star Trek treats.
They are the fearful images that have stalked humanity’s nightmares for centuries, supernatural creatures that feast on flesh and haunt the soul, macabre and uncanny beings that frighten and fascinate the imagination. Join us as we explore the lore and a few stories about these fascinating creatures.
From house-elves to thestrals, take a look back at the creatures introduced in the ‘Harry Potter’ movies and books.
We will be answering questions about all the topics related to Science Fiction, Fantasy, Comics, and Manga. Great prizes will be given to all participants.
Dark Knight. Caped Crusader. World’s Greatest Detective. Bats. Whatever you know him as, wherever you know him from [the blockbuster movies, TV shows, video games, cartoons, or millions of comics] Batman is proof you don’t need superpowers to be a superhero.
It’s February and love is in the air and the cosmos. Do the Klingons do it right by attacking the bride and groom with ma’Stakas after their vows to unite against all enemies? Or would you prefer a Betazoid wedding where all participants are naked? Come join our talk about these traditions and more.
A guest speaker will be here to discuss myths associated with Asian culture.
What makes a reboot successful? We will be discussing the charm of reboots, which ones we’ve liked, which ones we haven’t. Why are there so many of them? What we would like to see next.
Watch previews of upcoming movies and discuss which look good and which will be stinkers. Everyone who attends will receive a Summer Movie Guide that lists all the summer movies, not just SF/Fantasy.
