    Parable of the Sower

    Date: Tuesday, March 12, Noon, central time

    Presented by Tarshia Stanley, PhD, Dean of the School of Humanities, Arts and Sciences. An enthusiastic expert on the work of author Octavia Butler, Dr. Tarshia Stanley, will offer important insights into the novel, Parable of the Sower. Written as a novel of the future and backed by scientific research in the 1990s, Parable of the Sower is set in California and envisions wildfires, declining water resources and the choices these might force. Youth and characters of tremendous foresight and courage dominate the story and offer solutions filled with hope. Parable of the Sower will be offered in concert format at St. Catherine University in April so, in addition to introducing us to the book and its author, this online session prepares us for the special music event. Order tickets for the concert at the O'Shaugnessy.
