About the event
Join REEL's Callie Turk as she moderates a panel focused on Octavia E. Butler as part of our partner The G-Word's G/T/N Week. The author of renowned works Parable of the Sower and Kindred, Butler earned a MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Fellowship—the first eminent, Black, female science fiction writer to do so! Butler was also neurodivergent—how did being dyslexic shape her interest in sci-fi and storytelling, her self-concept, and her approach to writing?
