I'm always on the lookout for video interviews so I was thrilled to find the website for Closer to Truth: Science, Meaning and the Future, a PBS show with discussions among scientists, scholars and artists. Here are the links:
"Adapted from Octavia Butler's Xenogenesis Trilogy, Lilith (Ella Thomas) wakes up in a world not her own." Thank you Crystal Page for a wonderful adaptation. It is so exciting to see this well-directed, well-acted segment of Dawn (OEB, 1987)! http://youtube.com/watch?v=zyG8I9lixbc
Eye Witness: Octavia Butler
"Who would have imagined that when writer Octavia Butler gazed into a dog's eyes, her perspective would change forever?"
An essay on Oprah.com from May 2002.
It's summertime and... I have time to work on this site. So far I've worked on:
Improving individual posts- like the embedded video (below) and improved links to documents
Improving the overall site- like adding a search box which works
Your comments, questions about Ms. Butler's work or about this site are welcome Contact Us now!
Coming soon: More content by/about Octavia Butler. Stay tuned!
