Event Description

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

With powerful allusions to colonialism, Cadwell Turnbull’s The Lesson is the story of an alien outpost in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and their precarious relationship with their human neighbors.


All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator – to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore.

You can get your ticket one of two ways: either thru the link on this page (*we’ll ship the book to you!) – OR buy your ticket in the store, just look for our book club display (near the book tunnel).
