About this Event

Hi Ladies,

This month we'll be reading Kindred by Octavia Butler.

"In 1976, Dana dreams of being a writer. In 1815, she is assumed a slave. When Dana first meets Rufus on a Maryland plantation, he's drowning. She saves his life - and it will happen again and again. Neither of them understands his power to summon her whenever his life is threatened, nor the significance of the ties that bind them. And each time Dana saves him, the more aware she is that her own life might be over before it's even begun."

We're looking forward to discussing the themes of this ground-breaking novel and how well it has aged over time.

Also, it has recently been adapted into a tv show on Disney+, and we'd also like to talk about this with anyone who has seen it.

To discuss, we'll be meeting *IN PERSON* at Grind near Liverpool Street.

As usual, we ask for a min £1 donation when you get a ticket to cover admin costs of running the book club.

See you soon,

The Melanin Pages Team
