Typically, the topics are books or movies from the Science Fiction or Fantasy genres. Occasionally the subject of the meeting is a theme, for example “The Future of Space Travel” or “Science Fiction as Prophecy”. Topics for meetings are chosen during the June and December monthly meetings. At the June meeting topics are selected for the following September through February and at the December meeting for the following March through August.
People proposing a meeting topic should have some recent familiarity with the subject that they are proposing. Topic proposals should be submitted a few days in advance of the topic selection meeting to enable everyone to review the suggestions before the meeting. At the meeting, each person who has proposed a topic briefly presents a synopsis of the subject and why it would be an interesting topic. Each topic needs to have a presenter, be available and preferably not have been presented recently.
Topics can be submitted using the form on the Topic Proposal page.
