When She Woke by Hillary Jordan (Literary Sojourn Author Study Series)
When She Woke. is a powerful re-imagining of The Scarlet Letter set in modern times. The New York Times calls it is a “feverishly conceived dystopia (that) holds its own alongside the dark inventions of Margaret Atwood and Ray Bradbury.” S.F. Weekly calls it “a galvanizing fit of a novel, a paranoid fever of Hawthorne, Atwood, and your favorite fundamentalist . . . pulled off with brio and power.” Named one of BookPage’s Best Books of 2011, When She Woke, “blends hot-button issues such as separation of church and state, abortion and criminal justice with an utterly engrossing story, driven by a heroine as layered and magnetic as Hester Prynne herself,” says Booklist.
Hillary Jordan is a featured author at Literary Sojourn, Steamboat Springs' 20th annual festival of authors, which is sponsored by the Bud Werner Memorial Library. Jordan will be joined by fellow authors Kathryn Harrison, Jonathan Lethem, Laura Lippman, Tom Perrotta and Master of Ceremonies Andrew Sean Greer
