Discussion: Fledgling by Octavia Butler
Posted by Makyo on Jun 29, 2013
Howdy, marfs! This month, we read the book Fledgling by Octavia Butler, a story exploring identity, and the ways in which two cultures, one vampire, one human, interact.
! If you do not want to join on the video call but would still like to join in the discussion, you may do so by mentioning @bookmarfs on twitter, commenting here, or joining the #bookmarfs IRC channel on Anthrochat or Furnet. Remember, we’ll be talking about the book from start to finish, so it will be hard to avoid spoilers; just something to keep in mind! Hangout tips:
- If you're not talking, it's a good idea to mute yourself. You can click on the microphone in the upper left corner, or hit Ctrl+d
- If someone forgets to mute themselves and you can hear typing, munching, dogs howling, or whatever, you can mute them - if you get muted, remember it's not intended as a slight, we're just staying focused!
- Hangouts will try to focus on whoever is talking at the time, so try not to talk over others too much!
- If you are participating in the hangout, please leave this page or mute the video. The broadcast runs a few seconds behind, and it will echo terribly!
