CANCELLEDEmergent Strategy: an evening with adrienne maree brown

December 8, 2017 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm America/New York Timezone
Charis Books and More/Charis Circle

Charis is SO excited to welcome adrienne maree brown to read from and sign copies of her new book, Emergent Strategy.

Inspired by Octavia Butler’s explorations of our human relationship to change, Emergent Strategy is radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help designed to shape the futures we want to live. Change is constant. The world is in a continual state of flux. It is a stream of ever-mutating, emergent patterns. Rather than steel ourselves against such change, this book invites us to feel, map, assess, and learn from the swirling patterns around us in order to better understand and influence them as they happen. This is a resolutely materialist “spirituality” based equally on science and science fiction, a visionary incantation to transform that which ultimately transforms us.

adrienne maree brown is also the co-editor of the anthology Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction from Social Justice Movements with Walidah Imarisha, which was a Charis Books top ten book in 2016.

The is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Event. The suggested donation is $5, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
