The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
The Martian Chronicles, widely considered to be Bradbury's masterpiece, is less science fiction than social commentary on the America of the years immediately following World War II. The tranquility of Mars is disrupted by the earthmen who have come to conquer space, colonize the planet, and escape a doomed Earth.
This book is being read as part of the Flagstaff Festival of Science. There will an additional discussion at the East Flagstaff Community Library on Sunday, 9/22, at 2:00.
The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman
A novel set on a remote Australian island after World War I, where a childless couple live quietly running a lighthouse, until a boat carrying a baby washes ashore.
The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
A deliciously funny novella that celebrates the pleasure of reading. Bennett posits a theoretical situation in which Queen Elizabeth II becomes an avid reader, and the new ideas she thus encounters change the way she thinks and reigns.
