Octavia Butler’s novel, Parable of the Sower, was published in 1993 and set in the year 2024. We are just three years from the moment in which the novel is set. In this book talk, discussion, and writing session, Dr. Toni Pressley-Sanon, EMU professor of Africology, will lead us in an exploration of what Butler might have seen and considered in constructing the dystopian world portrayed in the book and consider its relevance in society today.
