Thursday Night Book Club In-Person / Online

Join the Library's longest running book club on the 2nd Thursday of every month to discuss a new book! This month, we are reading Kindred by Octavia Butler. Copies are available at the Downtown Information Desk.

The visionary author’s masterpiece pulls us—along with her Black female hero—through time to face the horrors of slavery and explore the impacts of racism, sexism, and white supremacy then and now.

Dana, a modern Black woman, is celebrating her 26th birthday with her new husband when she is snatched abruptly from her home in California and transported to the antebellum South. Rufus, the white son of a plantation owner, is drowning, and Dana has been summoned to save him. Dana is drawn back repeatedly through time to the slave quarters, and each time the stay grows longer, more arduous, and more dangerous until it is uncertain whether or not Dana’s life will end, long before it has a chance to begin.

We will meet in person in the Downtown Library Community Room and simultaneously on Zoom.
