About the event
AfroFuturism is a vast, forward-looking movement with solid roots in the past. Though it spans art, music, theory – everything – we read new fiction.
In Octavia Butler’s Dawn (first in the Xenogenesis trilogy), Lilith wakes up on an alien ship faced with an opportunity to save humanity… by losing it forever.
HOW IT WORKS:
All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, and a dedicated moderator.
You can get your ticket here (*we’ll ship the book to you!). Details on how to zoom will follow.
