      We're All Gonna Die! a dystopian book club

      Hopefully, things seem more dire than they actually are, but just to be on the safe side, we continue our preparation for dystopia with this book club. Totalitarianism, zombies, singularities - we leave no killer astroid unturned.



      In December, we read The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi. In the American Southwest, violent mini-despots control what little water is left, and life for all but the extremely powerful is a desparate affair. Can an assassin, a journalist, and a migrant find a fabled water supply and overturn the power structure?



      HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:

      All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator - to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore.

      You can get your ticket (which includes us shipping the book to you!) at the link on this page - OR just come in to the store and look for our book club display (near the book tunnel).

      If you choose the on-line option (the one with shipping), please send a mailing addy to larkin.lastbookstore@gmail.com



      PETER CLINES is a generations-back New Englander (we're talking tall hats and buckled shoes and half-the-population-dies-every-winter generations-back) who broke with tradition and moved to Southern California.

      After more than thirty years of writing, fifteen years in the film industry, and six years of writing about writing for the film industry, plus getting several short stories and a novel or ten published (one of which--Paradox Bound--hit the NYT Bestseller list), he feels he has some experience and useful advice to offer.

      Your thoughts on this may vary...

      Cost: Payment required - 26.95 to 31.95
