MAC'S BACKS BOOK CLUB DISCUSSES THE POWER
Mac's Backs Book Club discusses The Power by Naomi Alderman.
A small twist of nature - teenage girls now have the power to cause agonizing pain and even death. The world drastically changes. THE POWER is speculative fiction at its most ambitious and provocative, taking us on a thrilling journey to an alternate reality while exposing our own world.
"Bold and disturbing...it's not just a book of the moment. The Power is a major innovation in the overlapping genres of feminist dystopia/utopia, science fiction, and speculative fiction."-- Elaine Showalter, New York Review of Books
"A page-turning thriller and timely exploration of gender roles, censorship and repressive political regimes, The Power is a must-read for today's times."-- Lauren Bufferd, BookPage
The Power will also be the discussion book for Mac's Backs Femme Book Club (March 19) and Sci Fi Book Club (March 21.) All are welcome to join any or all discussion groups.
Mac's Backs Book Club meets at Hunan on Coventry, just down the street from the bookstore, at 7 p.m.
The book is available at the store or through our website www.macsbacks.com at the 20% book club discount.
