When she woke....

Let's read "When she woke" by Hillary Jordan.   Let's chat about the book whilst enjoying some Thai food (non spicy food options available!) in Mohegan Lake.

 A reminder about RSVP'ing. Please be considerate to others and don't hold a spot if you are not sure about attending, as changing to a no last minute does not allow people on the waiting list enough time to read the book. As always, I understand on occasion things come up that do not allow you to attend, but please change your RSVP no later than noon on the day of the event so I can give the restaurant an accurate head count.

Unfortunately we have had some events where members pulled out last minute or did not show, this is not only discourteous but causes problems for the group/restaurant. Members that routinely are a "No Show" or "Cancel last minute" will be removed from the group.


When she woke - Hillary Jordan 344 Pages (Amazon star rating: 3.9)

"Bellwether Prize winner Hillary Jordan’s provocative new novel, 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."

    Very well written book tackling tough topics. The ending left you with a lot of questions for the characters (maybe a sequel?) Like the author Hillary Jordan and would like to read other books by her.

    Good conversation about the book and great group of women. I found the book a little slow at the beginning, but toward the middle, it was riveting. Couldn't put it down!
