Library Carnegie Meeting Room (Basement)

Welcome to the Stoughton Public Library’s science fiction & fantasy book group. We’ve named this group "The Foundation" in honor of science fiction grand master Isaac Asimov and his famous Foundation Trilogy. Copies of the selected books are available on the second floor of the library (contact the library to receive your copy). We meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm. Here is a listing of all 2021 Foundation titles.

October 6 2021: Exploring Themes: Generation Ships
A generation ship is a spacecraft that travels at sub-light speed and takes centuries to reach even nearby stars. The original travelers grow old and die, leaving their descendants to continue the journey. This month we'll explore Orphans of the Sky (1941) by Robert A. Heinlein, Aurora (2015) by Kim Stanley Robinson, and/or Ship of Fools (2001) by Richard Paul Russo
