Science Fiction Book Club: “Dawn” by Octavia Butler @ SECULAR SATURDAY

Welcome to our monthly HumanistsMN Science Fiction Book Club! Join us every month — or come as you are able.

Our November book pick is “Dawn” by Octavia Butler. It is a post apocalyptic book about humans being genetically modified by aliens to survive after nuclear war. Butler is a multiple winner of the Hugo and Nebula awards. She was also awarded a MacArthur “genius grant.” A different kind of space saga, “Dawn” deals with genetics, time, and identity.

The book discussion will be from 3:00—4:30. Afterwards, join other Secular Saturday session attendees in the gallery for refreshments and socializing.

Our book club facilitator is Scott Lohman, a long-time activist with HumanistsMN, serving as president, vice-president, and board member at various times. He is a life-long science fiction reader and chairs a small local sci-fi con held annually in the summer.

This event is sponsored by HumanistsMN. If you are not yet a member, please consider joining to help us cover our costs and build the humanist movement. Not ready to join? Donations are gratefully accepted! Join or donate at
