Tankards & Tomes in July: The Kaiju Preservation Society

Do you like lighthearted sci-fi romps? Giant monsters? Both? We've got the book club for you!

This month, Tankards & Tomes, HDL's sci-fi/fantasy book club, is reading John's Scalzi's The Kaiju Preservation Society. We'll be meeting on July 26 at 7:00pm at Tulip City Brewstillery (430 W 17th St Suite 27, Holland, MI 49423) to chat about the book and all things sci-fi/fantasy.

Check out the description below, then stop by the library desk to get your copy of The Kaiju Preservation Society today!

When COVID-19 sweeps through New York City, Jamie Gray is stuck as a dead-end driver for food delivery apps. That is, until Jamie makes a delivery to an old acquaintance, Tom, who works at what he calls "an animal rights organization." Tom's team needs a last-minute grunt to handle things on their next field visit. Jamie, eager to do anything, immediately signs on.

What Tom doesn't tell Jamie is that the animals his team cares for are not here on Earth. Not our Earth, at at least. In an alternate dimension, massive dinosaur-like creatures named kaiju roam a warm and human-free world. They're the universe's largest and most dangerous pandas, and yet they're more vulnerable than you might think.

It's not just the Kaiju Preservation Society whose found their way to the alternate world. Others have, too. And their carelessness could bring catastrophe to both versions of Earth.

Tankards & Tomes' August read will be chosen at our July meeting.
