Help select a cli-fi novel for the ''Overdue Book Club'' in America....at Madison College!
January 31, 2017
The Madison College Libraries book club has a new name – the Overdue Book Club. This semester, we invite you to cast a vote and help us choose a book for our book club discussion. We have selected four books that explore the hot new theme of cli-fi.
What is cli-fi, you ask? It is a relatively new genre of fiction that deals with climate change and its effects on people and animals.
“Forty Signs of Rain,” by Kim Stanley Robinson.
“A Friend of the Earth,” by T.C. Boyle.
“Memory of Water,” by Emmi Itaranta.
“Odds Against Tomorrow,” by Nathaniel Rich.
The libraries will acquire several copies of the chosen book, and will meet to discuss our reactions.
