Jun 19 we will discuss the book, The Fifth Season, by N. K. Jemison

The novel The Fifth Season, by N. K. Jemisin, takes place on a world that experiences catastrophic climate change periodically, and explores how the society and science have evolved in response. Winner of the Hugo Award, 2016. The Fifth Season is the first book in the Broken Earth trilogy. Critics have said:
 
“N. K. Jemisin’s intricate and extraordinary world-­building starts with oppression: Her universes begin by asking who is oppressing whom, what they are gaining, what they fear. Systems of power stalk her protagonists, often embodied as gods and primeval forces, so vast that resistance seems impossible even to contemplate. When escape comes in her novels, it is not a merely personal victory, or the restoration of a sketchy and soft-lit status quo. Her heroes achieve escape velocity, smashing through oppressive systems and leaving them behind like shed skins.” (New York Times)
 
“Jemisin’s graceful prose and gritty setting provide the perfect backdrop for this fascinating tale of determined characters fighting to save a doomed world” (Publishers Weekly).
