The theme this month is DYSTOPIA. Let’s explore all the different ways that the world will end---fire, ice, flood, plague, or alien invasion. The possibilities are limitless.

This month let’s go back in time to read a classic of the sub-genre—Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler.

Published in 1993 , this novel explores a word where society has collapsed due to climate change, growing wealth inequality, and corporate greed. Centered on a young woman named Lauren Oya Olamina, the novel follows her on her journey through this world and her belief that humanity’s survival is in the stars.
