October 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

As part of the Community Emergence Series initiated by Kalamazoo Nature Center, RAWK is teaming up with Kalamazoo Public Library Alma Powell Branch staff to bring you:

Lunch with Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower

High school aged youth are invited to join us at Alma Powell Library for a delicious lunch and discussion of Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower. Each participant will receive a free copy of the graphic novel!
We’ll learn a bit about Octavia Butler (the first and only science fiction writer to receive a MacArthur Genius Fellowship) and explore the genres of science fiction and afrofuturism. Then we’ll dive into the novel and the prophecies it holds.

Please register, as seating is limited.
registration opens September 2nd at 9:00am
