A DISCUSSION OF PIERCE BROWN’S RED RISING AND
AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET OTHER SCIENCE FICTION READERS

Please join us on December 11th from 6-8 for our Science Fiction Book Club. This month we'll be reading the first novel in the Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown. The novel follows Darrow, a Helldiver in the mines below Mars. Darrow’s wife is put to death for singing a forbidden song while being punished for going into a forbidden section of their underground home. Devastated by her death, Darrow commits another act punishable by death. He buries his wife. Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies…even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.

An hour-long group discussion will be followed by an informal reception. Attendees are expected to have read the book in advance.

Copies of Red Rising can be purchased in paperback at The Writer's Block Book Shop. To register for the Book Club, call 702-550-6399 or email info@thewritersblock.org.
