Join us as we honor the late, great Ursula K. LeGuin with a discussion of The Dispossessed (1974), her award-winning story of twin planets, Earthlike Urras, a world of great poverty and immense wealth, and Annares, settled by Utopian anarchists disillusioned with the mother planet. LeGuin is the consummate creator of new civilizations, evidenced through her elegant prose and precise characterizations.
