We talk with Lynnicia Massenburg, Dr. Kristen Lillvis, and Dr. Kendra R. Parker about Octavia E. Butler's dystopian novel Parable of the Sower. This is in advance of a book discussion on the novel hosted by Schlow Library in collaboration with the Black Graduate Student Association at Penn State. Come join us!
If you'd like to read Parable of the Sower, we have it in print, ebook, audiobook, and comic form.
Also in this episode, our Underwriters from Fiction comes from Pawnee, Indiana's largest Internet Service Provider, and our prose nightcap is a selection from Nancy McCabe's memoir Can This Marriage Be Saved?
