February 24, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
QTPOC in Sci-Fi and Fantasy is a monthly book club exploring race, sexuality and gender in Fantasy and Sci-fi settings. This is a public book club that’s open to new members and allies. This month’s choice is:
How Long ’til Black Future Month?: Stories
by N.K. Jemisin
In these stories, Jemisin sharply examines modern society, infusing magic into the mundane, and drawing deft parallels in the fantasy realms of her imagination. Dragons and hateful spirits haunt the flooded city of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In a parallel universe, a utopian society watches our world, trying to learn from our mistakes. A black mother in the Jim Crow south must figure out how to save her daughter from a fey offering impossible promises. And in the Hugo award-winning novella “The City Born Great,” a young street kid fights to give birth to an old metropolis’s soul.
ACCESSIBILITY INFO: We have a new location in the auditorium on the ground level! Wheel chair accessible, no stairs.
