Beyond the Binding: A Beyond Baroque Book Club hosted by Dana Johnson

December 3 @ 12:00 pm 2:00 pm

Second meeting of Beyond Baroque’s inaugural book club—Beyond the Binding, hosted by Dana Johnson. Featuring special guest, Lynell George.

Beyond Baroque is pleased to announce the launch of Beyond the Binding, a Beyond Baroque book club with host Dana Johnson. In our first meeting, we discussed Kindred by Octavia Butler. Our second discussion (December 3) will cover A Handful of Earth, A Handful of Sky: The World of Octavia Butler by Lynell George. We are also excited to welcome the author herself to this session of Beyond the Binding!

Octavia Butler’s Kindred remains deeply relevant more than 44 years since its original publication in 1979. In it, she explores the legacy of slavery through her incomparable vision and imagination. Lynell George’s A Handful of Earth, A Handful of Sky beautifully illuminates how Butler’s life informed her craft and paints an intimate portrait of Butler’s creativity. These two California writers are a perfect pair to launch the inaugural book club of Beyond Baroque, Los Angeles’s seminal literary arts center.
