Lunchtime Book Club: Kindred by Octavia Butler

cover for Kindred by Octavia Butler

Our February book club choice is KINDRED by Octavia Butler in honor of African American History Month! In addition to our evening discussion on Monday, Feb. 26 at 6:30 p.m., we’ve added this lunchtime discussion of the same book for those of you who aren’t available in the evenings. As always, book club members get 20% off titles for book club.

About Kindred: 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.
