For our July meetup, we’re meeting a little earlier in the day for a comics brunch. We’re reading Laguardia, by Nnedi Okorafor with Tana Ford and James Devlin. We’re also reading/viewing a couple of supplementary items to get Okorafor’s view on Africanfuturism.
- Nnedi Okorafor, Laguardia. Buy on Bookshop.org (benefits independent booksellers – you can choose your local store!); or Powell’s.
- Edwin Okolo, Toye Sokunbi, and Tomiwa Isiaka. “Nnedi Okorafor on African Futurism and the Challenges of Pioneering.” The Native. November 5, 2018.
- Kendra Winchester, Sachi Albright, and Bezi. “Reading Women Discuss Afrofuturism and Africanfuturism.” Literary Hub. February 5, 2020.
- Nnedi Okorafor with Yvonne Mbanefo. “Africanfuturism: Disrupting Science Fiction.” Igbo Conference. June 18, 2020.
Saturday, July 25, 2020 11:00 Central Time.
And, since it’s hot out and to help us get into the spirit of things, here’s a list of some African cocktails, many with non-alcoholic variants.
