Tuesday, September 22nd at 6pm EST
“Published in 1993, Parable of the Sower follows the life of Lauren Olamina through her diary. At 15, she is fortunate to live within a gated community located in Los Angeles county. She lives in a future world that has little to no government and a neighborhood in constant fear of the outside. Any traveling is dangerous, and parents teach their children to hunt and defend themselves. Those who can afford it have guards at their gates. Those who can't become victims of crime and unspeakable acts outside those secure walls. One terrible night brings the worst of her fears- the walls come down and now she must face the outside world with little help and only her studies guide her.”
