Bookstacks Weekend Events: Aug 1-2

31 Jul

A little fiction, a little poetry – what a perfect weekend at Bookstacks.


Noon – Book Trivia: Crime Fiction
Crime doesn’t pay, or so the saying goes.  Crime Fiction authors such as Agatha Christie, Patricia Cornwell and P D James wouldn’t agree, and neither will you if you get enough trivia questions correct on Saturday to win the 500L first prize.  It would be a crime if you didn’t try for the best themed costume as well, so limber up those google fingers and steal the prize Lindens from Simeon.
Location: Bookstack Pub

2:00 p.m. – Science Fiction Saturday
Jago Constantine hosts a weekly gathering of science fiction fans. The discussions focuses primarily on books, but no one objects if it veers off into movies, television, etc. Come prepared to add some title to your TBR list.
Location: Bookstack Pub


11:00 am. – Poetry & Pints
Poetry open mics abound in Second Life, providing poets with many opportunities to share their work. Poetry and Pints takes a slightly different focus. We ask folks to come to share works by their favorite poets. It is a great opportunity to discover some new writers as well as revisit your favorites.
Location: Bookstacks Pub

3:00 p.m. – Poetry Libre Open Mic
Serene Bechir and Leonard Zimring host this weekly poetry open mic. Bring a poem to read or simply sit back and enjoy the verse.
Location: Bookstacks Pub
