Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Club #98

Binti 1-2

For November’s Book Club we will be reading both Binti (Binti #1) and Home (Binti #2) by Nnedi Okorafor. Her name is Binti, and she is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs.

“Nnedi Okorafor writes glorious futures and fabulous fantasies. Her worlds open your mind to new things, always rooted in the red clay of reality. Prepare to fall in love with Binti.” ―Neil Gaiman.

At our October’s Book Club we read Signal to Noise by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. An engrossing debut novel that details love, loss, and longings of three teenage friends in Mexico City and will have many digging out their old records.

When: November 13th, 6:30 PM – 7:30PM
Where: Open Books 651 W. Lake St. Chicago, IL 60661

    Do I need to rsvp if I want to attend a book club meeting, or do I simply show up?

    Thank you,

    Hi Renee
    No need to rsvp needed, just show up ready to give your thoughts about Binti.
