Discuss "Red Clocks" by Leni Zumas
The book for August is "Red Clocks" by Leni Zumas. (Library catalog: https://bit.ly/2LfyoTo). Even if you haven't read the book, you're welcome to attend and get a copy of September's selection. Co-sponsored by the City of West Hollywood's Women's Advisory Board. There's free parking with validation in the five-story parking structure. Summary (provided by the publisher): Five women. One question. What is a woman for? In this ferociously imaginative novel, abortion is once again illegal in America, in-vitro fertilization is banned, and the Personhood Amendment grants rights of life, liberty, and property to every embryo. In a small Oregon fishing town, five very different women navigate these new barriers alongside age-old questions surrounding motherhood, identity, and freedom. Ro, a single high-school teacher, is trying to have a baby on her own, while also writing a biography of Eivør, a little-known 19th-century female polar explorer. Susan is a frustrated mother of two, trapped in a crumbling marriage. Mattie is the adopted daughter of doting parents and one of Ro's best students, who finds herself pregnant with nowhere to turn. And Gin is the gifted, forest-dwelling herbalist, or "mender," who brings all their fates together when she's arrested and put on trial in a frenzied modern-day witch hunt.

    What we're about

    The West Hollywood Women's Book Club was founded in order to offer women a way to connect with other women.

    Our primary focus is connecting women who work, rest, or play in the City of West Hollywood. Our overarching mission is to transform our great city into a community one woman at a time. All women are welcome.
