Our August readings are Welcome to Your Authentic Indian Experience ™ by Rebecca Roanhorse and Cuisine des Memoires by N.K. Jemisin. In Welcome to Your Authentic Indian Experience ™ a tour guide leads virtual reality “experiences” for tourists who want to know what it's like to be Native American. Think Black Mirror meets Westworld. Cuisine des Memoires is a magic cooking story. A New Orleans restaurant offers meals from any point in history, as long as you know the exact date, time, and place. Register on zoom is required.
