The AfroFuturism Book Club with Tyree Boyd-Pates, 15 December | Online Event | AllEvents.in The AfroFuturism Book Club with Tyree Boyd-Pates
The AfroFuturism Book Club reads Master of Poisons, from Andrea Hairston.

About this Event

AfroFuturism is a vast, forward-looking movement with solid roots in the past. Though it spans art, music, theory - everything - we read new fiction. 



We're reading Andrea Hairston's epic fantasy adventure Master of Poisons. Djola, the Master of Poisons of the Arkhysian Empire and Awa, a storytelling sprite, must save their world from accelerating ecological disaster.



HOW IT WORKS:


All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, and a dedicated moderator.

You can get your ticket thru the link on this page (*we'll ship the book to you!). Details on how to zoom will follow.

*Please send a mailing addy to bGFya2luICEgbGFzdGJvb2tzdG9yZSB8IGdtYWlsICEgY29t
