The Book Club Meetings at Boskone

This year, Boskone has beefed up the presence of book clubs at the convention. In addition to our annual Boskone Book club that features a book by our Guest of Honor (this year it’s Clariel by Garth Nix), we are also featuring a time for the NESFA Book Club to gather as well as the addition of a new comics book club discussion group. For any book club gathering that you plan to attend, please be sure to read the book first so that you are properly prepared for an fun discussion.

Boskone Book Club: Clariel by Guest of Honor Garth Nix

To participate, please read the book and come ready with your observations on style, plot, character, setting, vision…

Comics and Cookies Book Club – Starlight (Adult Themes)
This year, Boskone is introducing the new Comics and Cookies Book Club! Join other fans in discussing popular and amazing comics. Starlight by Mark Millar and Goran Parlov calls on some of the elements of classic pulp science fiction, but adds a modern-day twist by metaphorically looking at how society treats the aging and those whom we believe to be mentally unsound. The comic has its own problems for some. Read the comics and come ready to discuss these thought-provoking stories. And, yes, there will be cookies! Please note that these comics and the discussion will feature adult themes.
