3rd Tuesday Book Club (Group B)


This event has ended

Group B meets to discuss PARABLE OF THE SOWER by Octavia E. Butler.

Picked by readers of the New York Times as the top science fiction nomination for the best book of the last 125 years, this is a 1993 novel set in a post-apocalyptic Earth that is heavily affected by climate change and social inequality. Lauren Olamina, a young woman who can feel the pain of others, becomes displaced from her home. Several characters from various walks of life join her on her journey north and learn of a religion she has discovered and titled, “Earthseed.” The main tenets of Earthseed are that “God is Change” and believers can “shape God” through conscious effort to influence the changes around them. Earthseed also teaches that it is humanity’s destiny to inhabit other planets and spread the “seeds” of the Earth.

Visit the Reference/Information Desk on the 2nd floor to register, borrow a copy of the book (first come-first served), and to learn about Book Club titles planned for the remainder of the year. 

The meeting will take place in the Conference Room on the 2nd floor. To confirm location and details, call 803-642-2020, extension 3
