St. Rocco's Readings for the Dispossessed presents a marathon reading of The Dispossessed by Ursula LeGuin.

The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin. (1974)

Publishers Synopsis:

A bleak moon settled by utopian anarchists, Anarres has long been isolated from other worlds, including its mother planet, Urras—a civilization of warring nations, great poverty, and immense wealth. Now Shevek, a brilliant physicist, is determined to reunite the two planets, which have been divided by centuries of distrust. He will seek answers, question the unquestionable, and attempt to tear down the walls of hatred that have kept them apart.
