Please join us for our discussion of When She Woke by Hilary Jordan. Hannah Payne’s life has been devoted to her family and her church, but after she's convicted of murder, her life becomes a waking nightmare. Set in an imagined near-future America, the line between state and church is gone, and if you're convicted of a felon, you no longer go to jail; you're dyed a permanent color and released back into the population to survive as best you can. Hannah discovers just how difficult this can be, and how it can be hard to determine friend from enemy.
Not your usual science fiction story, this book has been compared to The Handmaid's Tale, and the Scarlet Letter, among other stories. Read the book and come to what promises to be a lively discussion!
