Join Lamplighter and the Cambridge Public Library for our virtual book club, where we celebrate contemporary fiction from new voices.

Please register here.

You’re invited to the fourth session of our book club, where Lamplighter Brewing Co. and the Cambridge Public Library team up to highlight contemporary works from marginalized voices. This month, we’re so excited to welcome our new partner All She Wrote Books, an intersectional, inclusive feminist and queer bookstore that supports, celebrates, and amplifies underrepresented voices through our thoughtfully curated selection of books spanning across all genres.

This month, we’ll read Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler, an author who needs no introduction. This dystopian novel, set in 2025, follows one Southern Californian woman’s journey as the world descends into anarchy around her. Then we’ll meet over Zoom to discuss, and taste beer, at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 23.

This month's book, Parable of the Sower, is available as an e-book and digital audiobook through OverDrive (or the Libby app) and Hoopla (or the Hoopla app) using a Minuteman Network library card.
