On Octavia Butler

Octavia Butler was one of our most important science fiction writers, an African American woman who won the Hugo and Nebula Awards, and a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship. Butler had a remarkable talent for examining how religion and spirituality can make and break community. Today, we will share a profile of Butler and her major works.
