"Parable of the Sower" is a speculative fiction novel by Octavia Butler. Originally published in 1993, the story takes place in a post-apocalyptic 2024 where Lauren Olamina, a 15-year-old girl who physically feels others’ pain, is displaced from her Los Angeles home and must embark on a grim and dangerous journey to safety. As she travels, she develops her own belief system - one that, if shared, could save all of humanity.
