Hello all,

We have changed the venue for our book club to the Arte Hotel and restaurant located on Sukhumvit 19 past Terminal 21 across from the SilQ hotel.

Thank you,

Written By Octavia Butler published in 1993.

Set in the 2020s where society has largely collapsed due to climate change, growing wealth inequality, and corporate greed, Parable of the Sower centers on a young woman named Lauren Oya Olamina who possesses what Butler dubbed hyperempathy or "sharing" – the ability to feel pain and other sensations she witnesses.
