The Central Library had just gotten our new adult speculative fiction book group up and running when we needed to suspend our in-person programming. 

So, we are adapting with the times and taking The “What if…” Society online! To ensure everyone has access to the reading material, we are putting aside our novels for now and moving to short stories.
