Event Description
What Is: The Future of People

RSVPs for this event are now full! A limited number of spots will be available at the door. 

A project in the works since March 2020, we’re incredibly excited to host author Abu Qadim Haqq at the It's OK* Studios for a talk and book signing of his graphic novel, The Book of Drexciya. 

Depicting the creative sci-fi origins of the legendary Detroit techno group, Drexciya, the novel depicts a story of resilience through afro/technofuturism. Alongside Abu Qadim Haqq, this talk will be moderated by local musician and technofuturist, R-ODERICK.

Copies of Volumes I and II will be sold and available for signing. This is the first time these novels have ever been sold in Toronto. 

Seating for this event is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
