Description: 

What could a post-climate change world look like? In Parable of the Sower, author Octavia E. Butler explores a California that has fallen into a dangerous state of water shortages and social chaos. How will 15-year-old Lauren Olamina, plagued by hyperempathy, help her community survive?  Parable of the Sower has been compared to post-apocalyptic novels like 1984 and The Handmaid's Tale and, though written in the 90's, experienced a comeback in the arguably apocalyptic 2020.  If I haven't convinced you, maybe Gloria Steinem will: 'If there is one thing scarier than a dystopian novel about the future, it's one written in the past that has already begun to come true. This is what makes Parable of the Sower even more impressive than it was when first published' - Gloria Steinem  

Intent of Session: 

During our past sessions on climate change, we've explored real world science, realities, and proposed solutions. Let's dive into a fictional account of the world we've explored and discover what lessons, ideas, and hope that account can bring us.
