Special Edition Spring Box: OCTAVIA BUTLER [preorder]


Out of stock

New in 2023 – quarterly boxes! You’ll find Feminist Book Club’s special edition boxes at the beginning of every season. These boxes don’t require a subscription, feature books we’ve never carried, and are in limited supply.

This spring, we’re celebrating the inimitable Octavia E. Butler in partnership with our friends at Sistah SciFi!

What’s inside:

Box set collector’s edition of The Parable of the Sower and The Parable of the Talents, two of our all-time favorite dystopian novels that depict a not-so-distant future. Is it fiction or a thinly veiled warning? You decide.

Signed book plate from Paul Lewin, the artist behind the incredible cover art.

Tote bag from Sistah SciFi, featuring a quote from the Queen of Afrofuturism herself: “Every story I create, creates me. I write to create myself. – Octavia E. Butler”

OcTEAvia tea from Calabash Tea & Tonic, a Black-owned teahouse in Washington, DC owned by a fifth generation master herbalist. [Tea ingredients: butterfly pea flower, Jamaican hibiscus and ginger, elderberry, rose hips, Moroccan lavender, spice]

Bookmarks, pins, and stickers galore from both Feminist Book Club and Sistah SciFi
