Have your high-schooler(s) join Jonathan Meola in an informal discussion of classic science fiction and alternative history works, all year long! This is a great way for your learner(s) to get acquainted with great examples from the genre.

We will gather the second Sunday evening of each month (unless otherwise noted) from 6:30 – 8:00 pm Eastern Time to analyze, discuss, debate, challenge and laugh together!

An extension activity will be offered for each novel; however, completing these are NOT required.

NOTE: Parents should read the summaries of each book (online) to make sure they feel the novel is appropriate for THEIR learner.
