Clockshop is thrilled to announce our Radio Imagination Launch Party, organized in collaboration with the Octavia E. Butler Legacy Network. Without any official promotion, this event filled up within two days of going live on our website!
We will guarantee entry for RSVP’d guests until 8:30 pm. After 8:30 pm, the party will be open to the general public on a first-come, first-serve basis. Entry is based on capacity.
The evening will open with a call-and-response ritual inspired by the Earthseed religion of Butler’s prophetic novel Parable of the Sower (1993), presented by the Octavia E. Butler Legacy Network. Brief tributes to Butler will be presented by writers Lisa Bolekaja, Tisa Bryant, Robin Coste Lewis, Rasheedah Phillips, and Yolo Akili Robinson, followed by music, food, and drinks.
