Perspectives Book Group - How Long 'Til Black Future Month?

Presenter: Joshua Tepley

As part of New Hampshire Humanities' Perspectives Book Groups, we're reading How Long 'Til Black Future Month? by N.K. Jemisin. These science fiction short stories challenge and delight readers with thought-provoking narratives of destruction, rebirth, and redemption that sharply examine modern society. 

Spirits haunt the flooded streets of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In a parallel universe, a utopian society watches our world, trying to learn from our mistakes. A black mother in the Jim Crow South must save her daughter from a fey offering impossible promises. And in the Hugo award-nominated short story “The City Born Great,” a young street kid fights to give birth to an old metropolis’s soul.

Pre-registration is required to receive the book prior to the discussion. Please use the contact information in the event details below to pre-register.
