Thomas Nelson Community College’s (TNCC) Book Circles will kick off its fall season with a meeting on Thursday, November 11. Science Fiction enthusiasts can join TNCC’s Book Circles at 2 p.m. in the Hampton campus Library Gallery for discussions about Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game,” “Treason,” and “Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus.”
Students, faculty, staff and members of the community are invited to participate in the discussions. The books are now available on reserve in the College’s library or for purchase in the campus bookstore; supplies may be limited. TNCC Book Circles is supported by TNCC Student Activities and the President’s Cultural Scholarships.
In “Ender’s Game,” Card introduces readers to Andrew Ender, a young man produced through genetic experimentation who may be what the military needs in a war against aliens who are fighting to destroy human life. “Treason” follows Lanik Mueller, the heir to Planet Treason who can regenerate injured flesh and trade extra body parts for iron, the metal he needs to build a spacecraft to escape the planet. Readers can journey into the past lives of humans in “Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus.” After the world has been reduced to less than one billion people, one woman gets a glimpse of the past and finds out that one of the people she sees can see her too. This leaves her wondering if she can send a message to change the past.
