Please join us at Bluestockings on May 25 at 2:30 to discuss Octavia E. Butler’s Kindred.
In Kindred (1979) – a “grim fantasy” according to the author – Butler explores themes race, gender, power, oppression, community and mutual aid through the eyes of Dana Franklin, a person transported from 20th century LA to a Maryland slave plantation in 1815. The book is a powerful and poignant narrative of the trauma of slavery as experienced by the time traveling Dana that, according to one reviewer, is “brilliant , utterly absorbing, very well written, and deeply distressing”.
