Ladies' Night: Afar

"In a fantastical post-industrial desert, fifteen-year-old Boetema suddenly develops the ability to astral project to other planets while she sleeps. When she accidentally gets a young man hurt on a planet light-years away, she must figure out a way to project back to save him. On her own world, Boetema's two parents have temporarily left her and her thirteen-year-old brother, Inotu, to make a living as salt shepherds. Left to their own devices, the two siblings must flee across a dangerous desert when Inotu gets into trouble with a threatening cyborg bodyguard. As Boetema visits amazing planets and encounters vibrant cultures, she must confront her mistakes and learn to trust in Inotu as she navigates her newfound abilities."

What is Ladies' Night? On the first Friday of every month, we set aside three hours specifically for the purpose of welcoming women, nonbinary, and gender-fluid individuals to comics and geek culture. While we always strive to be a safe space for everyone who walks through our doors, we recognize that historically, some groups of people have not been made to feel welcome, and we aim to help fix that. This is not a "no boys allowed" event, as we remain open for business, and the point is to welcome, and not to exclude. That said, the safety and comfort of the group is paramount, and anyone who engages in cruelty or aggressive behavior will be asked to leave. These first Fridays are part book club and part social club. Every month, a book is chosen for discussion, and that book is available at a discount. Usually, we try out a craft project or board game. There are always plenty of laughs, and there is often cake.
