Game and Video days, as well as Wednesday evenings at the Clubhouse, have resumed being in-person. For now, NESFA and Boskone Business Meetings will remain via Zoom.
In addition to the activities listed here, some NESFA members gather at the clubhouse almost every Wednesday evening to work, socialize, and play games (often Dominion). The building is almost always open between 6 pm and 9 pm on Wednesday evenings and often later. When the weather is inclement, please call 617-625-2311 to make sure that there are people at the clubhouse before showing up.
NESFA Reading Group Book: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.
The name Frankenstein has conjured up the image of a monster ever since Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley anonymously published the novel in 1818. Yet it was't the creature who was named Frankenstein, it was the scientist who bore that name. Acquiring their resources cheaply, that time's equivalent garage-saleing for human body parts, they pillaged morgues, graves, operating rooms and slaughter houses. But what they brought to life was a story and an idea that has endured long past the life of its creator and will continue to endure.
Join us as we discuss a book that's celebrating its bicentennial. A book that suggests questions like: what is a monster? Should society limit which pursuits science explores? Is knowledge itself dangerous or does the danger come from the ways knowledge is used?At the clubhouse.
