Masters of Science Fiction and Readings
Join us for a fun event and favorite - Open Readings -
with a DVD viewing of Masters of Science Fiction to start
We will begin the afternoon with Masters of Science
Fiction (DVD). Hosted by Professor Stephen Hawking,
Masters of Science Fiction contains celebrated short
stories from the world's most highly regarded science
"From the very beginning, we have struggled to
understand time, matter and the infinite universe; who
we are, where we are headed, and if we are alone.
Great minds — and some of the genre’s most legendary
writers and directors — have now imagined the most
wonderful and terrifying answers to these questions. Join
host Professor Stephen Hawking for these six expeditions
into the outer realms of scientific imagination, starring
such award-winning actors as Sam Waterston, Judy
Davis, Anne Heche, Malcolm McDowell, Clifton Collins
Jr., Terry O’Quinn, Elisabeth Röhm, John Hurt, Sean Astin,
James Denton, Brian Dennehy, James Cromwell and
more.This collection features all six episodes of the
acclaimed series, including the two ‘lost’ episodes —
Little Brother and Watchbird — never broadcast during
its original network run."
Following the viewing, attendees will take turns reading
selections, of their choice. If you don't feel like reading,
you can listen and enjoy. Always a fun time seeing
what surprises will be read.
Dining will follow the event.
