Monday, November 20th we will be discussing Guards! Guards! by Terry Prachett.

We hope you can join us!  We require no commitment – come for one meeting or come for them all.

Welcome to Guards! Guards!, the eighth book in Terry Pratchett’s legendary Discworld series. Long believed extinct, a superb specimen of draco nobilis (“noble dragon” for those who don’t understand italics) has appeared in Discworld’s greatest city. Not only does this unwelcome visitor have a nasty habit of charbroiling everything in its path, in rather short order it is crowned King (it is a noble dragon, after all…). How did it get there? How is the Unique and Supreme Lodge of the Elucidated Brethren of the Ebon Night involved? Can the Ankh-Morpork City Watch restore order – and the Patrician of Ankh-Morpork to power?  Magic, mayhem, and a marauding dragon…who could ask for anything more?

We hope you can join us!  We require no commitment – come for one meeting or come for them all.
