Morning Book Group
Wednesday April 19, 2017
11:00 AM until 1:00 PM
The Morning Book Group will read and discuss Kindred by Octavia Butler. Dana, a modern black woman, is celebrating her twenty-sixth 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.
The morning book group meets the third Wednesday of the month September through June. Join us for a lively discussion and a cup of tea. No need to sign up! Copies of this month's title are available at the circulation desk – call 508-647-6520 to request a copy.
