Book & Wine Club: "The Power" by Naomi Alderman

  • Private Residence (address provided with registration) Brentwood, CA United States (map)

Join JWI's L.A. Young Women's Leadership Network at a lovely private home in Brentwood for wine, munchies, and amazing conversation! 

$5 donate-to-participate benefiting JWI's National Library Initiative, which creates children's libraries in domestic violence shelters - transforming mundane spaces into comforting havens with colorful furniture and rugs, hundreds of new books, computers and toys. 

In The Power, the world is a recognizable place: there's a rich Nigerian kid who lounges around the family pool; a foster girl whose religious parents hide their true nature; a local American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But something vital has changed, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power - they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world changes utterly.

This extraordinary novel by Naomi Alderman, a Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year and Granta Best of British writer, is not only a gripping story of how the world would change if power was in the hands of women but also exposes, with breath-taking daring, our contemporary world.
