In a future, long-declining America, society is strictly stratified by class. Long-abandoned urban neighborhoods have been repurposed as high-walled, self-contained labor colonies. The members of the labor class find purpose and identity in their work to provide pristine produce and fish to the small, elite villages that ring the labor settlement. Fan, a female fish-tank diver, embarks on what becomes a legendary quest to find the man she loves when he mysteriously disappears. For full enjoyment of this discussion, it is recommended that attendees have read the book. NEW LOCATION: Program will be held at Boston Blackies, 405 Lake Cook Rd, Deerfield.
