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!
