Join us for In Deep's last Wednesday noon recording session til 2017! Author Meg Elison joins us to discuss the re-release of her dystopic novel, "The Book of the Unnamed Midwife".
Here's the description of the book that won the 2014 Philip K. Dick Award, and in its new version Publishers Weekly and Amazon Best Books of the Year, 2016:
The apocalypse will be asymmetrical. In the aftermath of a plague that has decimated the world population, the unnamed midwife confronts a new reality in which there may be no place for her. Indeed, there may be no place for any woman except at the end of a chain. A radical rearrangement is underway. With one woman left for every ten men, the landscape that the midwife travels is fraught with danger. She must reach safety— but is it safer to go it alone or take a chance on humanity? The friends she makes along the way will force her to choose what’s more important. Civilization stirs from the ruins, taking new and experimental forms. The midwife must help a new world come into being, but birth is always dangerous… and what comes of it is beyond anyone’s control.
After we record the show, let's toast the coming of the holiday season with cookies and coffee. Meet the crew and learn about any deep dark production secrets you've always longed to learn about.
No charge to attend but we deeply appreciate your RSVP. See you Wednesday!
