Part time-travel tale and part slave narrative, Octavia Butler's "Kindred" was first published in 1979 and is still widely popular. The book is the first-person account of a young African-American woman writer, Dana, who finds herself shuttled between her California home in 1976 and a pre-Civil War Maryland plantation where she meets her ancestors and becomes entangled in their community. Copies of the book will be available for check out at the Natural Bridge service desk.
