Read Octavia E. Butler on her Birthday.

Highly Textured Librarian

Happy Birthday, Octavia E. Butler! She would have been 67 years old today. oeb

I’m going to eat a cupcake in her honor and I plan to read one of the interviews in Conversations with Octavia Butler. In addition, the Octavia E. Butler Legacy Network is celebrating by sharing “love notes” on their Tumblr page. I sent in a love note of my own to participate and you can take a look at it here.

If you’ve never read anything by Octavia, I suggest starting out with Bloodchild if you like short stories, or Fledgling if vampires are your thing. You like time travel? Try Kindred, but if you need a trilogy, go for Lilith’s Brood.

Side note: And a happy birthday to my cousin Krys who shares Octavia’s birthday.
