Octavia E. Butler is arguably one of the best sci-fi writers of her time. A rarity in her day–African-American and female– she broke boundaries and created extraordinary, life-changing stories.
In this class, we will examine two of her short stories – one from the “Unexpected Stories” collection and another from the “Bloodchild” collection. We will discuss the central themes throughout her work which include female sexuality, dystopia, and loss of humanity.
Participants will receive electronic copies of the short stories before each class, so that they can come prepared to discuss. Class will include some delicious, sci-fi themed snacks!Buy tickets/get more info now
