Baldwin Boettcher Evening Book Club

The Martian ChroniclesPlease join us on Monday, April 8, 6:30 pm, for a discussion of the science fiction classic, The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury.  Copies of the book are available at the branch.

Summary:  Mars is a place of hope, dreams and metaphor - of crystal pillars and fossil seas - where a fine dust settles on the great, empty cities of a silently destroyed civilization.  It is here the invaders have come to despoil and commercialize, to grow and to learn - first a trickle, then a torrent, rushing from a world with no future toward a promise of tomorrow.  The Earthman conquers Mars ... and then is conquered by it, lulled by dangerous lies of comfort and familiarity, and enchanted by the lingering glamour of an ancient, mysterious native race.
