Glitch: 2024 Yarn & Book Club Reading List
This year brings the return of the Ex Libris Fibers yarn & book club! In 2024 we're taking a glimpse at some early cyberpunk science fiction titles, followed by a look at post-cyberpunk titles that adapted and redefined the genre.
As we read along, a mystery color inspired by themes in each book will be available for preorder. Preorders are open for one week on the 15th-22nd of January, March, May, July, September, and November.
While we're focusing on the most library-accessible and chatworthy titles, all year long I'll be sharing genre recommendations that didn’t make the cut (and that might be a little harder to track down). I'll also share some more recent titles that have clearly been influenced by the cyberpunk genre so smashingly established before all those AOL discs started flying.
We'll meet virtually after the first three titles (June), and again after the final three (December) to discuss. Details to follow - No purchase is necessary to participate in the virtual meetings!
Below is the entire reading list for this year.
Book 1: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
Book 2: Snow Crash by Neil Stephenson
Book 3: Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan
