Staff Reviews

Butler wrote this book as a warning during the '90s, but unfortunately we haven't learned much since its publication. This is the first in a series that explores climate change, "hyperempathy syndrome," and space travel during the 2020s. Parable of the Sower is one of my favorite books I've read so far in college.

— Hazel


Forced to flee an America where anarchy and violence have completely taken over, empath Lauren Olamina--who can feel the pain of others and is crippled by it--becomes a prophet carrying the hope of a new world and a new faith christened "Earthseed". A stirring portrait of 21st-century America by the author of "Wild Seed".
