Parable of the Sower Lesson Plan

Relationship to Other Books

Butler followed up Parable of the Sower with a sequel novel, Parable of the Talents, published in 1998. The novel continues to explore themes raised in Sower, as well as a more deep dive into the dangerous of religious fundamentalism.

Students might also consider the work of significant Black sci-fi authors, such as Samuel Delany, and/or other dystopian novels, such as the Hunger Games books by Suzanne Collins or The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.
