Bookstacks Weekend Events: Paper Chase, SF, Social Media & Storytelling

07 Aug

Bookstacks is packing a ton of fun into this weekend! A little bit for everyone, no matter what your taste. I hope you find some time to sample the events.


Noon: Paper Chase: Countries
Thanks to Lludmila, America has dominated the Paperchase so far.  But this week, the theme is: Countries, and we would like another Country to take the lead.  So come along and represent your country and find the missing pages to win the 500L first prize.  Dress the part and you could win the costume competition as well.  This hunt will be short and sweet – so don’t be late!
Location: Bookstacks Isle

2:00 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

4:00 Non-fiction Book Discussion: Taking On the System: Rules for Radical Change in a Digital Era
Virtually Speaking and Bookstacks is hosting a non-fiction book discussion of Taking on the System. This book explores how technology is empowering the common person to become an activist. The topic will interest folks interested in politics, activism, and the impact of social media. Well-written and timely, this book will appeal to a broad audience.
