This June, join us for a compelling and thought-provoking discussion on "Chain-Gang All-Stars" by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah, a book that has garnered attention as a nominee for Best Science Fiction and Best Debut Novel in 2023.



About the Book:

"Chain-Gang All-Stars" is set in a dystopian future where the American private Pr*son system has evolved into a grotesque spectacle of entertainment and exploitation.

  • Powerful Themes: Delve into the exploration of systemic racism, mass incarceration, and the meaning of freedom in America.
  • Dynamic Characters: Analyze the complex relationship between Thurwar and Staxxx, set against the backdrop of a morally corrupt system.



Event Highlights:
  • In-Depth Discussion: Explore the novel's multifaceted characters and the ethical dilemmas they face.
  • Interactive Dialogue: Share your insights and perspectives on the novel’s portrayal of a dystopian society.
