Fractal Noise - book coverThis month's book is Fractal Noise, by Christopher Paolini

Set twenty-three years before the events in To Sleep in a Sea of Stars, Fractal Noise is a sci-fi thriller that tells the story of humanity’s first discovery of alien intelligence.

A stellar survey team in the mid-2030s discovers an anomaly on a seemingly uninhabited planet. A pit 50 kilometer wide and most certainly not of natural origin. How did it get there? And who, or what, built it? A small team must land and journey on foot across alien terrain to find out. Each step they take toward the mysterious abyss is more punishing than the last. And the ghosts of their past follow.

What to Expect:

  • Engaging Discussions: Share your thoughts, theories, and questions with fellow spacefarers as we dissect the chosen book.
  • Diverse Perspectives: Our group welcomes readers of all backgrounds and experiences, ensuring a rich tapestry of viewpoints.
  • Community Building: Connect with like-minded individuals who share your passion for the extraordinary realms of science fiction.

Who Can Attend:
This Science Fiction Book Group is open to everyone! Whether you're a library regular, a casual reader, or someone who just discovered the wonders of sci-fi, you're invited to join our cosmic rendezvous.

Books can be checked out by any Upper Valley resident, regardless of library membership.

Mark your calendars, set your coordinates, and prepare for an odyssey of literary discovery! The future awaits, and we can't wait to explore it together in the pages of captivating science fiction. See you at the next meeting!
