Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler
Book Review by Kristine Madera
Woven through Parable of the Sower is a hopeful thread that something better is possible if we are brave enough, crafty enough, and compassionate enough to follow its tug and reimagine our guiding philosophies.
Though I truly hope the world isn’t destined for a version of life presented in Parable of the Sower, the lessons apply as much to our journey today as they do to the world that Lauren, the 18-year-old protagonist in the book, lives in.
Lauren models those lessons and her emerging philosophies for living with openness, curiosity, grace, and grit, and offers examples we’d do well to follow.
