The Rhode Island Science Fiction Club Holiday Party this year is a Harry Potter themed potluck party, so bring any dishes either British inspired or Potter inspired, and a beverage. The party will be December 14, 2019, 6 to 10 PM, in the downstairs meeting room in Fr. Lawless Hall behind St. Benedict's Church, accessible via Transit St off of Beach Ave or West Shore Rd.
We'll also do a "Sneaky Slytherin" Gift Exchange for those who wish to participate. You can bring a new, wrapped, sci-fi/fantasy related gift up to $10 in value. They DO NOT have to be Harry Potter themed, (but some members would not be against that, either). We'll have more fun activities too.
Please bring a non-perishable food item for the church pantry as a way of paying it forward to those in need. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if attending.
Here are some links for ideas for Harry Potter related dishes.

Two months after the premiere of its second season, DC Universe has announced a season 3 for the superhero series.
The show’s second season kicked off with Dick Grayson reviving the team – Gar/Beast Boy, Rachel/Raven, and Jason Todd/Robin – and moving them to San Francisco. The Titans’ resurrection also brought Slade Wilson/Deathstroke out of retirement with one goal – destroying the team.
New episodes of Titans are available every Friday on DC Universe. The third season is expected to debut in fall 2020.
HBO has ordered a 10 episode season of a new series, 'House of the Dragon.' This Game of Thrones prequel takes place 300 years before the original series, and will focus on “the beginning of the end for House Targaryen.”
‘House of the Dragon’ was co-created by Martin and Ryan J. Condal (‘Colony’), based on a rejected spin-off proposal from ‘GoT’ producer Bryan Cogman. (He has since moved over to Amazon’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ series.) Martin’s book ‘Fire & Blood’ serves as the blueprint.

Instead of a traditional Halloween Party, this year the RISFC decided to participate in the Providence Ghost Tour.

If you've never been on a Providence Ghost Tour, check it out!
