Resist! Book Club: Kindred (Graphic Novel Adaptation) 3/30, 6:30pm

Join us at the bookstore for the Resist! Book Club, a monthly meeting where we will discuss books with a focus on radical resistance, historical and contemporary activism, and intersectionality. This month, we'll be chatting about Kindred, a graphic novel adaptation based on the book by Octavia Butler!

Adapted by celebrated academics and comics artists Damian Duffy and John Jennings, this graphic novel powerfully renders Butler’s mysterious and moving story, which spans racial and gender divides in the antebellum South through the 20th century. 

Butler’s most celebrated, critically acclaimed work tells the story of Dana, a young black woman who is suddenly and inexplicably transported from her home in 1970s California to the pre–Civil War South. As she time-travels between worlds, one in which she is a free woman and one where she is part of her own complicated familial history on a southern plantation, she becomes frighteningly entangled in the lives of Rufus, a conflicted white slaveholder and one of Dana’s own ancestors, and the many people who are enslaved by him.

Grab a copy at the store if you don't already have one!
