Join Our Book Club: Read Binti by Nnedi Okorafor


Love to read or exchange ideas?

Join our Art Book Club to read, discuss, and create alongside friends and community members. The first book we are reading is Binti by Nnedi Okorafor. We will read a new book before each of our four class meet-ups throughout the term. During these class gatherings, we will discuss themes and character as well as collaborate on an art-project based on the book!

The novella, Binti, ties together themes of Africanfuturism, sci-fi, female heroism, the costs of knowledge and much more. It’s part of a novella trilogy whish has received both a Nebula and Hugo award. The author, Nnedi, is a U.S. native born to two Nigerian (Igbo) immigrant parents. Nnedi’s time in Nigeria throughout her childhood largely influences her writing.
