EASTCHESTER, N.Y. -- A book discussion for those in their 20s and 30s welcomes new members at the Eastchester Library.
"Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline is the focus of an upcoming meeting.
This adrenaline shot of uncut geekdom, a quest through a virtual world, is loaded with enough 1980s nostalgia to please even the most devoted John Hughes fans.
In a bleak but easily imagined 2044, Wade was an impoverished high school student who calls a vertically stacked trailer park home, lives primarily online, alongside billions of others, via a massive online game, OASIS, where players race to unravel the puzzles OASIS creator James Halliday built into the game before his death, with the winner taking control of the virtual world's parent company, as well as staggering wealth.
To join the discussion, contact Elizabeth at the library at (915)-793-5055 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Copies of the book are available at the library reference desk.
The Eastchester Library is at 11 Oakridge Place.
