Book Club: Reading Under the Roof Cloud

January 17, 2019, 6 pm

Explore the genre of Afrofuturism and the artwork of Jeff Donaldson as we discuss the novella Binti by Nnedi Okorafor with guest moderator Bronlynn Thurman, local science fiction and art aficionado.

Binti is the first of the Himba people to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs. Binti is the Hugo and Nebula award-winning first novella in Okorafor’s Binti series.

Free and open to all.

Copies of the book are available for purchase in the museum shop.
