“She is at this moment the grande dame of female science fiction writers in the United States.”

Margaret Atwood chooses our 2014 Lifetime Achievement Medalist Ursula K. Le Guin's A Wizard of Earthsea for the Wall Street Journal’s author-guided book club.

Wow. Imagine reading Le Guin in a book club with Margaret Atwood!

Read the excerpt and then join the discussion here. 

I’ll join any book club that has Margaret Atwood as a moderator!

“After all, if you have a choice, why not call yourselves Shining Acolytes of the Sacred Flame of Literacy in a Dark and Encroaching Universe? I admit this is hard to put on a button, so why not abbreviate it to: librarians?”

“The desire or inclination to be happy and to avoid suffering knows no boundaries. It is in our nature. As such, it needs no justification and is validated by the simple fact that we naturally and correctly want this.”
