Bookstacks Weekend: Go West Trivia, The Illustrated Man, S/F, and Poetry

26 Sep

This weekend, Third Life Books is celebrating the opening of its new sim, Wind River Territory, and Bookstacks is taking part! We are holding Book Trivia and our book discussion at the new sim, so make sure you check out the SLURLs. Also, there are a number of other activities taking place that readers and writers alike will find interesting.


Noon: Book Trivia: Go West, Young Man
Who originally said “Go west young man and grow up with the country”?  If you can answer that, you could be one question towards 500L providing you are the fastest with most correct answers in Saturday’s Trivia quiz.  The wild, wild west is the theme, so the costume contest should be fierce with a winner for best themed attire will be taking home 500L.
Location: Wild River Territory Saloon (slurl)

2:00 p.m.: Science Fiction Saturday
Join Jago Constantine for this weekly round up of what you have been reading in the field of Science Fiction.
Location: Bookstacks Pub (slurl)


11:00 a.m.: Book Discussion: The Illustrated Man (Ray Bradbury)
A man’s moving tattoos provide a framework tying together a series of short stories by Ray Bradbury. Join us for the discussion, whether you have read the entire book or just a story or two.
Location: Wild River Territory (slurl)

3:00 p.m. Poetry Libre Open Mic Poetry
Join hosts Leonardo Zimring and Serene Bechir in the cozy room behind the fireplace at Bookstacks for some of the best poetry in SL.  Reads in any language are encouraged.  Everyone is welcome to read and if you do not have a mic or prefer not to read aloud we have several people who would be glad to read for you.
