About this event:
We will discuss The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin. When the human ambassador Genly Ai is sent to Gethen, he thinks that his mission will be a standard one of making peace between warring factions. Instead the ambassador finds himself wildly unprepared for the strange and beautiful culture where the people are both male and female in one, and neither. Unless Genly can overcome his all too human ingrained prejudices about gender, he may destroy both his mission and himself.
