As well as our customary attempt to set the world straight, we can discuss movies and any good SFF books folks might be interested in. Also as a possible topic, a book based on a activist internet hackers such as Anonymous’s current campaign against Cyberjihad and the potential for any collective to attack its enemies via the Internet.

It is a good idea to join our Meetup site, as it can be used to automatically email the members, without exposing those addresses to anyone. You’ll also get automatic reminders of events. 

If you’d rather not use, please email to let us know you’ll be coming, so we’ll have a number to give the restaurant.

Dear Friends,The purpose of this message is to invite you to a meeting to establish an organizing committee for Prose in the Park (PiP), a new initiative for a major open-air literary festival/book fair in Ottawa in 2015.

PiP will be a tented literary festival/book fair with the main authors events taking place on the covered stage in the park. The date of PiP is yet to be determined but notionally it would be on one Saturday from late Spring to the end of Summer 2015. We hope to attract 2000 book lovers, 60-70 local authors; 10-15 out-of-NCR authors (e.g., from Montreal, Toronto, Kingston, and Perth); 10-18 publishers.
