“Octavia’s Brood” Community Read Kick Off Event Wed., Oct. 14

octavias brood
This year’s Community Reads book, Octavia’s Brood, is a science-fiction/fantasy anthology inspired by the work of Octavia Butler and focused on themes of social justice (in many planes of time).

To kick off this semester’s community read, we’re hosting an Introduction to Octavia’s Brood event this Wed., Oct. 14 from 1:30-2:30 p.m. on the third floor of the library. Refreshments will be served. We’re going to display a webpage for community reads containing many resources for anyone interested in the book. We’re encouraging students, staff and faculty to attend and learn more about this book and the activities that will be planned around it in the coming year.

We’re hoping to get some students at the kick off interested in the topics of social justice, science fiction and creative writing to get involved with the book group portion for next quarter. We’re also hoping to get more staff and faculty involved in the read itself. If you’ve ever been interested in any of the above spread the word and we hope to see you there!
