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.


Book clubs are still a thing around here. You might be stuck at home, but you're not alone - Get your ticket here, then email us a shipping address. We'll mail you your book, then we'll Zoom together and talk about it.  (Specific instructions follow after you've got your ticket.)


We're reading Octavia Butler's vampire tale, Fledgling.


All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, and a dedicated moderator - to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore. You can get your ticket thru this link right here (*we'll ship the book to you!).  

*Please send a mailing addy to larkin.lastbookstore@gmail.com.
