The Speculative Fiction Rec'ing Crew Book Club

We welcome a new Book Club to lala books this month. This one will run a bit different than usual. Rather than read a single book, participants will read within a theme. Drop in and talk books with other readers. (There will be snacks)
The rules for the Speculative Fiction Reccing Crew are simple:
1. Come with one recommendation within the monthly topic. 
2. Come with one recommendations among what you read that month. 
Themes for the next 12 months are: 
December: Winter Holiday themed 
January: New Year/ New Author 
February: Black Writer spotlight

April: Funniest book
May: Asian and Pacific Islander authors 
June: Best LGBTQ author
