The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin
January 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$25
featuring Jeff Spinner-Halev, Kenan Eminent Professor of Political Ethics
“From the brilliant and award-winning author Ursula K. Le Guin comes a classic tale of two planets torn apart by conflict and mistrust — and the man who risks everything to reunite them.”—HarperCollins Publishers
“Le Guin’s The Dispossessed is built to last.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Ursula K. Le Guin’s 1975 Hugo award winner…remains a challenging and urgent book. And, what’s more, a good reminder that the old left has plenty to teach us, even as the new right accrues ever more power.”—The Guardian
“The Dispossessed — which has not been out of print since its original publication in 1974 — is perhaps Le Guin’s most famous work, and arguably her most intellectually challenging.”—SF Site
“All through, this impresses with small but incalculably right choices which add up solidly and confirm Mrs. Le Guin as one of our finest projectionists of brave old and other worlds.”—Kirkus Reviews
