Parable of the Sower

Octavia E. Butler’s novel, Parable of the Sower, is set amidst the global climate and economic crises of the early-2020s. Originally published in 1993, the speculative nature of Parable of the Sower offers a strikingly accurate view of our world’s current state. We will discuss this novel in conversation with Anne Duk Hee Jordan’s I will always weather with you which explores themes of climate change, technology and humanity’s relationship to the Earth.

Please come prepared to discuss the book and for a brief walkthrough of the exhibition.
