July Book Discussion Group-When She Woke

Join us July 10th, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss, When She Woke by Hillary Jordan

When She Woke, tells the story of a stigmatized woman struggling to navigate an America of a not-too-distant future, where the line between church and state has been eradicated and convicted felons are no longer imprisoned and rehabilitated but chromed―their skin color is genetically altered to match the class of their crimes―and then released back into the population to survive as best they can. Hannah is a Red; her crime is murder.

In seeking a path to safety in an alien and hostile world, Hannah unknowingly embarks on a path of self-discovery that forces her to question the values she once held true and the righteousness of a country that politicizes faith.

Ask at the front desk for a copy of this suspenseful dystopia or email us at baynelibrary@einetwork.net to reserve your copy. And be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming book discussions:
8/7/18 Expert in Murder by Nicola Upson
9/11/18 Carnegie’s Maid by Marie Benedict
