Palabras' 'New Suns, Ancestral Seeds' book club focuses on books authored by BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color) writers in the genre of speculative fiction. 

This month's book: The Way Spring Arrives And Other Stories

From an award-winning team of authors, editors, and translators comes a groundbreaking short story collection that explores the expanse of Chinese science fiction and fantasy.

In The Way Spring Arrives and Other Stories, you can dine at a restaurant at the end of the universe, cultivate to immortality in the high mountains, watch roses perform Shakespeare, or arrive at the island of the gods on the backs of giant fish to ensure that the world can bloom.

Written, edited, and translated by a female and nonbinary team, these stories have never before been published in English and represent both the richly complicated past and the vivid future of Chinese science fiction and fantasy.

We read one book each month and meet up on the last Saturday of the month at noon at Palabras Bookstore to discuss it.
