Miriam Toews in Conversation With Leni Zumas

April 30 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
Powell’s City of Books, 1005 W Burnside Street, Portland, OR 97209 + Google Map

Based on real events, Miriam Toews’s Women Talking (Bloomsbury) is the story of eight women in a remote Mennonite colony who face an agonizing decision in the aftermath of a series of unspeakable sexual crimes. Toews’s masterful new novel, told through the “minutes” of the women’s all-female symposium, uses wry, politically engaged humor to relate this tale of women claiming their own power to decide. Toews will be joined in conversation by Leni Zumas, author of Red Clocks.
