"The fire flared up and swallowed the dry paper, and I found my thoughts shifting to Nazi book burnings. Repressive societies always seemed to understand the nature of 'wrong' ideas."
Kindred is a time-travel novel by American writer Octavia E. Butler. Kindred examines the dynamics and dilemmas of antebellum slavery as well as its legacy in present American society. Through the two interracial couples that form the emotional core of the story, the novel also explores the intersection of power, gender, and race issues and speculates on the prospects of future egalitarianism. Join WIN's Book Group for our January conversation as we discuss the novel and meet other like minded women.
