MONDAY November 18th at 7pm: TEACHER'S PET / WAR and PEACE

by Matthew Joseph Harrington -
in Larry Niven's universe¹
TEACHER'S PET / WAR and PEACE

From the Known World series, a woman inadvertently encounters the Pak* virus and become a Protector.  Infuriated with the instinctive behavior the change tries to force on her, she rebels and becomes a Protector unlike any other.

*The Pak are a race ancestral to humans.  Think of them as highly intelligent, fantastically strong, nearly immortal, overprotective grandparents.

¹ with full approval by Larry Niven

TUESDAY, November 5th at 7pm: WHAT'S COOKIN'? - Favorite Food Stories & Recipe Exchange

We start this short celebration of food in literature with an eating contest, and one of the great American storytellers: Damon Runyon




"It is agreed that they must eat with knife, fork or spoon, but speed is not to count, and there is to be no time limit, except they cannot pause more than two consecutive minutes at any stage, except in case of hiccoughs. They can drink anything, and as much as they please, but liquids are not to count in the scoring . . . The losing side is to pay for the food, and in case of a tie they are to eat it off immediately on ham and eggs only.

~ from Damon Runyon's short story "A Piece of Pie"

Caledonia presents Runyon's "consuming" tale and more,  live on Stream.  Bring your favorite recipes to share, on note card! 

MONDAY November 4th at 7pm: VARIABLE STAR

by Spider Robinson -
and posthumously by Robert Heinlein
VARIABLE STAR

Escaping the preplanned "destiny" envisioned by an extraordinarily rich almost-father-in-law, a young man encounters situations that speed him on the way to maturity.
