SCIENCE FICTION Book Discussion - Question # 1

The online book discussion for our Science Fiction benchmark, Fortune's Pawn by Rachel Bach, starts today! 

I will be posting a question-a-day through Tuesday, August 26th so any and all staff can participate in this section of the Genre Study Program. 

There will also be an in-person book discussion on Wednesday, August 27th in GA Room 112 starting at 9:00 AM for any staff who can and wish to attend.

Now, the first question ...

With a female main character who is in a typically male role (mercenary), does it change the way readers view her aggressive/masculine actions and speech?

So everyone can follow the discussion, please enter your response by using the COMMENTS: link at the bottom of the post.

A complete list of the discussion questions for this title will be posted Tuesday evening, August 26 under the Book Discussions tab

[My thanks to Jessica Moyer, Assistant Professor, School of Information Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for generously supplying the discussion questions!]
