Every family has secrets and the burdens they carry can be intolerable. In the realm of speculative fiction, they can be down right scary. Find out for yourself as the Beyond the Tropes series returns to the Center for Fiction for its next set of sessions this fall. Marc L Abbott delves into the works of Victor LaValle (The Changeling), Tony Morrison (Beloved) and Octavia Butler (Fledgling) and discusses how one family member’s decision to withhold information or perform an act, no matter the intension, can nearly destroy an entire family structure.
Registration is now open. 1st session begins October 24th.
