SciFri Book Club

Anchorage Public Library has partnered with Science Friday to bring the Sci Fri Book Club to the science and reading enthusiasts in our community.

The SciFri Book Club is a program created by Science Friday to bring people together around all things science reading – anything from sci-fi short stories to nonfiction science books to science articles from various publications to science-y poetry!

We have two Book Club kick-offs per year—usually, a nonfiction pick in the winter, and a fiction pick in the summer/fall. Between Book Clubs kick-offs on the radio, we'll keep the conversation going in the online community and keep reading together!
