Harry has always found meeting space at the Stark County District Library until the coronavirus closure of meeting space. Harry's meetings are very informal. At each meeting, the members discuss a book, movie, TV episode, or short story that was chosen at a previous meeting. Unlike some book clubs, we do not follow any predetermined list of discussion questions. We just converse. We don't always stay on topic, but we do try to stick to the topic for as long as we keep each other interested. Sometimes an author visits, or we have some other special presentation. (See the schedule of coming events below.) Members who have attended conventions since the last meeting give informal con reports. Party plans are made. Usually by the end of the meeting, we've built up a good head of steam & go out for ice cream.

Harry was founded January, 1977. We hear that's a pretty long time for a science fiction club to be around. Read The Compleat History Of Harry pages to find out what you've been missing.
Harry has a great core group of active members, with an extended family of about 40 souls. We have no dues, no officers or politics, and no requirements for membership other than attendance.
