BRATTLEBORO Sci-Fi Reading Group: "This is How You Lose the Time War" by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone: From Goodreads: "Among the ashes of a dying world, an agent of the Commandant finds a letter. It reads: Burn before reading. Thus begins an unlikely correspondence between two rival agents hellbent on securing the best possible future for their warring factions. Now, what began as a taunt, a battlefield boast, grows into something more. Something epic. Something romantic. Something that could change the past and the future.". 7-8:30 p.m. Sci-Fi Reading Group meets 3rd Fri. of every month in the Quiet Reading Room. Open to readers and dreamers of all ages.
