Winter is Coming.

A Song of Ice and Fire Book Club

Winter is coming. It's a great time to take on reading a long fantasy series like A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. 

The series that inspired the popular HBO show, Game of Thrones, is known for its intricate web of characters and surprising plot twists. Five books have been written and two more are on the way. Learning the motives and histories of each house (or family) throughout the series is hugely rewarding. 

Still not convinced? Read a review of A Game of Thrones from our staff picks.

Whether the world of Westeros is new to you, or you're practically a maester, come discuss the first book in the series, A Game of Thrones. The book is available from DC Public Library in hardback, paperback, e-book, e-audiobook, and book on disc.

The first meeting will be on Thursday, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. in the Petworth Citizen Reading Room. Petworth Citizen is located at 829 Upshur St. NW, about a block from the Petworth Neighborhood Library.
