Seeding Futures Author Visit Series

Our Seeding Futures Author Visit series are hosted by The New Children’s Museum and provide literacy learning opportunities for children. This free program includes a book reading by the author, Q&A, a book signing and a take-home art kit inspired by the reading.

This program is inspired by our exhibition, Octavia E. Butler: Seeding Futures and intended to engage visitors across generations inviting participants to explore and engage with themes and topics inspired by Octavia E. Butler’s work and thought leadership.

Funding for “Octavia E. Butler: Seeding Futures” and programming is provided in part by Prebys Foundation, The Getty Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the NEH, and the City of San Diego. Special thanks to the Octavia E. Butler Estate, Octavia E. Butler Enterprises for in-kind support.
