Critical_Era

Critical Era is a free to join, online, contemporary fiction book club maintained and operated by Typographical Era.  Official selections are announced on a monthly basis. All you need to do is grab yourself a copy of the book, read it, and then join us online for a healthy discussion about its contents.  From time to time, and whenever possible, the author of the novel will make his or herself available to the group during our live discussion to answer questions as well.

We only have one rule: Be nice to one another.  It is okay to not like a book.  It is NOT okay not to like a person because they did not like a book.

As a member of the club you’re not required to attend every meeting.  You’re free to read whatever titles that interest you and participate in whichever conversations that you’d like to be a part of.

Live discussions are facilitated by Typographical Era via Skype audio chat and are generally scheduled on the last Thursday of each month at 9PM Eastern time.  You can download and install Skype here.  The basic application is free of charge and the paid premium services they provide are not required to take part in the monthly discussions.

Therefore, it doesn’t matter if you’re in England, Finland, or the United States, as long as you speak English (sorry, it’s the only language we’re fluent in!) and enjoying reading contemporary fiction, there’s a place for you here.

If you’ve got additional questions about Critical Era or you need assistance with setting up Skype, please use the comment form below to contact us.
