SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT RE: THURSDAY NIGHT MAY 14
There have been a great many inquiries about Thursday evening. Thank you all for your CON-tinued interest! Our initial plan was to sponsor and co-host a special Thursday evening event featuring our Science Guest Dr. David L. Clements from the UK. Negotiations with our proposed co-host fell through when they incorrectly applied their current budget funds to another project. For a few months now we’ve been re-grouping and trying to salvage the concept and re-implement with another co-host. At this time we regret to report that outside factors have squashed all of our backup plans to the point where we’ve run out of time: if something did gel, we don’t feel there’s enough to flog it properly and make it work well – if at all.
Sadly, our Thursday evening special event is cancelled.

May 14, 2015 is indeed a Thursday…
Our initial plan was to sponsor and co-host a special Thursday evening event featuring our Science Guest Dr. David L. Clements from the UK. Negotiations with our proposed co-host fell through when they incorrectly applied their current budget funds to another project. So now we’re re-grouping and trying to salvage the concept and re-implement with another co-host. At this time there is nothing firmed up as yet. But we aren’t giving up yet and will keep you updated as new information comes in.

The third book in the New York Times and Publishers Weekly Best Selling Young Adult “Star Kingdom” series has two young settlers on a pioneer planet seeking to stop a war and to save the intelligent alien treecats from exploitation by unscrupulous humans. The fires are out, but the trouble’s just beginning for the treecats. On pioneer planet Sphinx, ruined lands and the approach of winter force the now Landless Clan to seek new territory. They have one big problem – there’s nowhere to go. Worse, their efforts to find a new home awaken the enmity of the closest treecat clan – a stronger group who’s not giving up a single branch without a fight Stephanie Harrington, the treecats’ greatest advocate, is off to Manticore for extensive training – and up to her ears in challenges there. That leaves only Stephanie’s best friends, Jessica and Anders, to save the treecats from themselves. And now a group of xenoanthropologists is once again after the great secret of the treecats – that they are intelligent, empathic telepaths – and their agenda will lead to nothing less that treecat exploitation. Finally, Jessica and Anders face problems of their own, including their growing attraction to one another. It is an attraction that seems a betrayal of Stephanie Harrington, the best friend either of them have ever had.
