Alpha Book Club Reads HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE Part 3: Life, the Universe, and Everything!

Hello, and welcome to Alpha Book Club! If this is your first time joining us, you’re in for a real treat. Alpha Book Club is, as the title suggests, an interactive book club hosted by Nerdist Editor-in-Chief Rachel Heine (that’s me!), host of the Nick Animation Podcast and many of Geek & Sundry‘s Twitch shows, Hector Navarro, and from SourceFedNERD and GeekBomb, the incomparable Maude Garrett. Every Wednesday at 6:15pm PST, we gather together online with our fellow bookworms to discuss a section of that month’s chosen book.

Vote for our next book here.

Like any good book club, ABC features rousing discussion about characters, themes, tone, and style, fan casting or comparing potential film adaptations, questions from the audience, and of course, copious amounts of wine. Usually, you can only watch Alpha Book Club by signing up to be an Alpha member, but for the entire month of February, we’re bringing you our latest book, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, for free on the Nerdist YouTube channel!

If you’re just joining us for the first time, never fear! You can watch the first two episodes right here:

Now that you’ve caught up, you can watch our third discussion of the month up above, where we discuss some exciting book news (Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy is getting a companion series!), debate the arrogance and cruelty of humanity, show off our best “ugly faces,” and of course, wax poetic about the power of storytelling.

Join us this week to finish Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy AND select our next book for March! Vote here and our selection will be announced at the end of Wednesday’s show.
