Climate Fiction Reading Group: Tentacle

Join the World History Center for the next meeting of the Climate Fiction Reading Group where we will be discussing the novella Tentacle by Rita Indiana. Plucked from her life on the streets of post-apocalyptic Santo Domingo, young maid Acilde Figueroa finds herself at the heart of a voodoo prophecy: only she can travel back in time and save the ocean – and humanity – from disaster. Tentacle explores questions of climate change, technology, Yoruba ritual, queer politics, poverty, sex, colonialism and contemporary art. Rita Indiana is a Dominican writer and musician. 

AN e-book version of the novella is available here via the Pitt Library System here. Please RSVP to whc@pitt.edu if you plan to attend. 

Monday, December 12 at 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

World History Center, 3900 Posvar Hall
