The Tribbles kick off #OctaviaCity 2019 with a visit from the World Builders Writing Club featuring authors Violet Levoit, Margaret Brown, Dale Shilito and the venerable Lance Woodruff.
Enjoy the Tribbles' recreation of a thoughtful interview of the late science fiction great that ran in In Motion Magazine, March 2004. We endeavor to bring Butler's words to life as she speaks of her muse, her characters, her outlook for life and black lives and much more.
Celebrating a legacy of the insatiable! PRINCE is remembered on the day we mourn his loss, reflect of his work, marvel at his gifts and laugh for the sake of shedding more tears.
