Booze & Lasers Book Club - Brown Girl in the Ring

Join us in a discussion on this month's book, Brown Girl in the Ring by Nalo Hopkinson. Drink specials are available from Raconteur during book clubs and author readings, so grab a glass and join us for a lively literary discussion. Every month our selected titles are discounted 20% through the date of the book club. All are welcome, no purchase required. The Booze & Lasers book club meets on the third Monday of every month.

The rich and privileged have fled the city, barricaded it behind roadblocks, and left it to crumble. The inner city has had to rediscover old ways--farming, barter, herb lore. But now the monied need a harvest of bodies, and so they prey upon the helpless of the streets. With nowhere to turn, a young woman must open herself to ancient truths, eternal powers, and the tragic mystery surrounding her mother and grandmother.

She must bargain with gods, and give birth to new legends.
