This session was originally scheduled on June 17.  It has been rescheduled for August 19, 2020 at 7 pm.

Come discuss Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler, “a story of grit and survival in a world that’s been ravaged by an erratic climate and global economic upheaval” (from the review by Jennie Treadway-Miller). The “sharer” (empath) main character, seeing a disconnect between her preacher father’s religion and the chaotic and tragic world around her, envisions a hopeful new society and religion, Earthseed.

In June, I was ill and in July, I totally spaced out and forgot our meeting–sorry about that! But I have an alarm set and I can’t wait to hear what you have to say about this classic of science fiction.   –Amy

Join us on June 17 July 15 to discuss Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler, “a story of grit and survival in a world that’s been ravaged by an erratic climate and global economic upheaval” (from the review by Jennie Treadway-Miller). The “sharer” (empath) main character, seeing a disconnect between her preacher father’s religion and the chaotic and tragic world around her, envisions a hopeful new society and religion, Earthseed.
