Event Details

This discussion of Octavia E. Butler’s 1993 science fiction book, Parable of the Sower, will be led by Jason Erik Lundberg, a Singapore-based American author and anthologist of more than 20 books. Butler’s post-apocalyptic novel (which was followed up by a sequel, Parable of the Talents), is centred around the spiritual awakening of a young woman named Lauren Olamina, amidst a dystopian America wracked by the violence brought on by climate change, unrelenting greed and systemic injustice.

Lundberg, who is also the fiction editor at Epigram Books and founding editor of LONTAR: The Journal of Southeast Asian Speculative Fiction, will walk participants through the novel’s hopeful tale set in the now not-so-distant year of 2025. He will also introduce participants to Butler herself, a multiple recipient of the Hugo and Nebula awards, who gained prominence as one of the first African American women writers within science fiction.
