Dune in June

Welcome to Dune in June Read-Along!

As the title suggests, we will be reading and discussing Frank Herbert's sci-fi classic Dune during the month of June; the read-along is open to all ERAU students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Whether you are a Dune novice or a hardcore fan, join us! The discussions will be divided into sections:

  • Anything Dune-ish: A general discussion on anything related to Dune-related
  • The Book (all sections included: Book I: Dune ; Book II: Muad'Dib ; Book III: The Prophet)
  • The book's themes
  • Movie adaptations - yes, there is a movie from 1984, and another anticipated adaptation will be out later this year.

Dune was written in 1965 by Frank Herbert and it won the prestigious Nebula Award; it has been cited as the world's best-selling science fiction novel. Thematically, it addresses the politics of humanity, technology, morality, environmentalism, ecology, gender dynamics, religion, and much more.

For those not familiar with Dune, here is a quick intro to the book and its universe:
