Banned Book Week

In Honor of Banned Book Week: A question I often ask people. The WHY is fascinating

I asked my husband it years ago…here is the conversation (back when the obvious choices were 1984, Fahrenheit 451 and Handmaiden Tale)
Which Dystopic society scares you the most?
Me: Fahrenheit 451….There are NO BOOKS!!!
Anthony: Handmaiden Tale…its the most realistic…
Me: that’s sad, and scary with the patriarchy stuff….but….still…..no books…nope still Fahrenheit 451

All organizing …

All organizing is science fiction. What does a world without poverty look like? What does a world without prisons look like? What does a world with everyone having enough food and clothing look like? We don’t know. It’s science fiction, and it is as foreign to us as the Klingon homeworld (which is called Q’onos in case you were wondering). But being able to envision it and imagine it means we can begin seeing the steps it would take to move us there.

Yay Tumblr…this is definitely why/how I read Sci-Fi/Fantasy as a hopeful act
