I need some book discussion questions for Dawn by Octavia Butler.  I read this 2 months ago but am running a book discussion about it on Tuesday.  I'm not good at coming up with questions and most of the time I find them online.  I have found tons of reviews and even book reports.  But no general list of questions. 

Here's some I have so far:

 

The people in Phoenix take the view that if you go and live with the Oankali that you are a traitor?  

Joseph had been rather outspoken about the Oankali before his death. Would Joseph have chosen to stay with Lilith or side with the resisters? Explain your answer.

Why do the men in the beginning of the story seem to have a harder time accepting the Oankali and mating with an ooloi than the women?

Can anyone give me any other good ones?

Thank you. I looked all over online and the only questions are found were the ones in my first post. Those were samples given for a lesson/book guide that you can buy.
