On Thursday, May 14 at 4 p.m. at the Valley Library, Walidah Imarisha and Gabriel Teodros will examine the ways in which visionary science and fantasy fiction can inspire the radical imagination to envision the features of a socially just world. They will discuss and read from a new edited collection called Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements (AK Press). The event will be held in the reading room of the Special Collections and Archives Research Center on the fifth floor of the Valley Library.
Octavia’s Brood seeks to demonstrate a connection between speculative writing and movements for transformative social change. This panel is presented by the Anarres Project for Alternative Futures.
