Daughters of the North - March Book Club

A more modern (and--very key--much shorter) book than Villette, Daughters of the North is a dystopia in the vein of The Handmaid's Tale. Both are dystopias set in the near future, featuring the collapse of the economy as we know it. 

The world in this case is also in the midst of environmental crisis, causing people to be herded into urban centers with strict population control measures implemented. 

Sarah Hall has created a world as interesting as it is disturbing. From Goodreads: "Provocative and timely, Daughters of the North poses questions about the lengths women will go to resist their oppressors, and under what circumstances might an ordinary person become a terrorist."

    Also, I've talked with a few of the FNP guys that would potentially be interested in joining us in the future, as long as we don't always read books that are intended for a female audience, hehe. So something to discuss on Tuesday ;)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
