Kindred by Octavia Butler

Dana, a modern black woman, is celebrating her twenty-sixth birthday with her new husband when she is snatched abruptly from her home in California and transported to the antebellum South. Rufus the white son of a plantation owner is drowning and Dana has been summoned to save him. Dana is drawn back repeatedly through time to the slave quarters and each time the stays grow longer more arduous and more dangerous until it is uncertain whether or not Dana's life will end long before it has a chance to begin.

Get Lit is a book discussion group for those adventurous souls who would like to read a little something different. We meet at Crawford Brew Works (3659 Devils Glen Road). No reservations are needed and participants do not need to finish the book or like the book to join in the discussion. For more information please call 563-344-5707 or email

Get Lit is supported by the Friends of the Bettendorf Public Library.
