MAC'S BOOK CLUB

Mac's Book Club will discuss When She Woke by Hillary Jordan on Wednesday, December 19th at 7:30 p.m.

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.

"An utterly engrossing story, driven by a heroine as layered and magnetic as Hester Prynne herself, and reminiscent, too, of Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale". Absolutely a must-read." --"Booklist", starred review
