Octavia Butler’s Sci-Fi Novel Dawn is Becoming a TV Series
Octavia E. Butler’s groundbreaking science fiction novel Dawn is being adapted for the small screen. This is the first time any of the author’s material has been turned into a series. The 1987 book is the first in her Lilith’s Brood trilogy along with Adulthood Rites and Imago.
Dawn tells the story of an African American woman named Lilith who wakes up 250 years after a nuclear war has left the Earth uninhabitable. Along with a race of aliens called the Oankali, Lilith works to rebuild the human race. The novel is notable for its exploration of race, gender, and sexuality alongside more classic sci fi themes of technology and how far it should be followed.
