The book for our December meeting is:

"The Dispossessed" (in later printings titled "The Dispossessed: An Ambiguous Utopia") is a Protected content by American writer Ursula K. Le Guin, one of her seven Hainish Cycle novels.

Description from Wikipedia says:
"The Dispossessed is one of a small number of books to win the Hugo, Locus and Nebulas Awards for Best Novel. It achieved a degree of literary recognition unusual for science fiction due to its exploration of themes such as anarchism (on a satellite planet called Anarres) and revolutionary societies, capitalism, utopia, and individualism and collectivism."

Description from Goodreads says:
"Shevek, a brilliant physicist, decides to take action. He will seek answers, question the unquestionable, and attempt to tear down the walls of hatred that have isolated his planet of anarchists from the rest of the civilized universe. To do this dangerous task will mean giving up his family and possibly his life—Shevek must make the unprecedented journey to the utopian mother planet, Urras, to challenge the complex structures of life and living, and ignite the fires of change."
