The Octavia Books Science Fiction Book Club will be discussing The Obelisk Gate, the sequel to N. K, Jemisin's The Fifth Season. You are always invited - but we especially hope you will read the book and join the discussion as part of our New Orleans Independent Bookstore Day celebration. There will be coffee along with something extraordinary that Rebecca Anne Smith will bake up for the occasion.
In a world where the Earth is always shifting, only a handful of people can control the tremors... or set them off in a cataclysmic disaster. N.K. Jemisin has been nominated for the Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy Awards for her fiction. She won the Locus Award for Best First Novel for The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.

The season of endings grows darker, as civilization fades into the long cold night.
