** Registration for the second round of the LAX LAB book club is now closed. Sign up will open again mid-June 2020. **

Welcome to the LAX LAB virtual book club. In small groups, we will be exploring classic and contemporary works of fiction, with emphasis on science-fiction, climate fiction, and speculative fiction. We will take these works as departures to discuss our current health crisis, the climate crisis, visions of the future, spaceships, and that kind of stuff. The book club is an experiment in how we might think through prescient issues with art.

Watch this space to follow along in the shadows and see what we’re reading and discussing. Live long and prosper! And please support local, independent bookshops and libraries.
