The Boskone Book Club is Back!

We’re bringing back book discussion this year. The purpose of the Boskone Book Club is to bring people together to discuss a specific book. The volume under discussion will be Parasite by Mira Grant (the horror nom de plume used by our Guest of Honor, Seanan McGuire). Bob Kuhn will lead the discussion.

Parasite by Mira Grant

A decade in the future, humanity thrives in the absence of sickness and disease.

We owe our good health to a humble parasite – a genetically engineered tapeworm developed by the pioneering SymboGen Corporation. When implanted, the tapeworm protects us from illness, boosts our immune system – even secretes designer drugs. It’s been successful beyond the scientists’ wildest dreams. Now, years on, almost every human being has a SymboGen tapeworm living within them.

But these parasites are getting restless. They want their own lives…

If you wish to join the discussion, please read the book, and come ready with your observations. We look forward to seeing you at Boskone 51!
