RCM Writing Announces Reading Club Dates

The RCM Writing Team cordially invites you to join us for our autumn reading club! The club meets twice a month in the RCM Teamspeak server (ts.rivalcastmedia.com:8540) to discuss what we like, what we hate, and things we notice that help that month’s selection fit (or not fit) into the genre for which the story is intended.

For the month of October, we will be reading and discussing Douglas Adams’ novel The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Because Jen will be in a timezone that renders our normal midweek meeting time ungodly, discussion for chapters 1-14 of Hitchhiker will take place Sunday, Oct. 15 at 2 PM ET (1 PM CT; 7 PM BDT), and we’ll finish with chapters 15-35 on Sunday, Oct. 29 at 2 PM ET (1 PM CT; 6 PM BST because of course we picked the day the UK comes off daylight stupidity time).

For November/December, we’ll be back to our normal Wednesday at 8:30 PM ET (7:30 CT) meeting slot to discuss Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One, which we swear we chose prior to learning there’s a movie version coming out next spring. But hey, join us and you’ll be able to critique book/theatrical differences too! We’ll be reading Level One (chapters 1-16) for our meeting on Nov. 15, Level Two (chapters 17-27) for Nov. 29, and wrapping up with Level Three (chapters 28-39) for our December 13 meeting.

What if I’m interested, but can’t make the meeting times? Fear not, fellow reader! Jen has acquiesced to also running a Discord for peeps who want to share their thoughts. Text channel #reading_discussion will go live starting on Oct. 5 in the RCM Discord for those who want to start dropping their thoughts about the first half of Hitchhiker.
