Speculative Fiction Reading Group: A Wizard of Earthsea

I am once more working with ScribLab, this time bringing something a little different - a reading group!  You can sign up here and I have copied the details below . If well attended, I will be doing more of these reading groups in the future. The Speculative Fiction Reading Group is led by Aurora Hurd and is open to all - those brand new to the speculative fiction umbrella of genres and those who are long-time readers/writers. While there will be an exploration of craft elements, the goal first and foremost is to enjoy these stories.  Stories will be chosen in a rotation between works by authors who identify in the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, authors of color, and women authors. The group will explore classics of speculative fiction as well as the current boom in works by diverse authors. To prepare for each meeting: Read the book of the month. Keep the following question in mind: Was there a particular piece of writing craft (character building, description, pacing, etc) that stood out to you
