June 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The next Fishing Creek Farm Book Club discussion will be Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.  We will discuss the book Kindred by Octavia E. Butler. The meeting on the deck at the club house.  If the weather is bad, we will meet remotely.

Please join us for the discussion. We have no rules except to enjoy discussing books of interest with our neighbors!

The book we have selected is Kindred by Octavia E. Butler.

Goodreads says this is the first science fiction novel written by an African American woman.
Amazon describes the book as follows:

The visionary author’s masterpiece pulls us—along with her Black female hero—through time to face the horrors of slavery and explore the impacts of racism, sexism, and white supremacy then and now.Dana, a modern black woman, is celebrating her twenty-sixth birthday with her new husband when she is snatched abruptly from her home in California and transported to the antebellum South. Rufus, the white son of a plantation owner, is drowning, and Dana has been summoned to save him. Dana is drawn back repeatedly through time to the slave quarters, and each time the stay grows longer, more arduous, and more dangerous until it is uncertain whether or not Dana’s life will end, long before it has a chance to begin.

Everyone is invited to join the discussions. Please contact Susan Magazine via email or phone (301-213-1799) if you would like to join the group.
