Women from Other Worlds

 When: July 26, 2021 | 4PM

Where: Dog-Eared Books

Women From Other Worlds Book Club explores the contemporary work of female authors of fantasy and sci-fi. Historically underappreciated in the genre, these writers are now doubtlessly some of its greatest leaders.

This month we are reading The Witch’s Heart by nationally renowned debut author, Genevieve Gornichec, now a Ames resident! The Women From Other Worlds book club will meet at 4 PM, on Monday, July 24.

“A unique novel that transforms the faceless names of an epic tale into living, breathing, sympathetic characters.” – Louisa Morgan, Author of A Secret History of Witches

Gornichec’s stunning work of fantasy plays off Norse mythology. The Witch’s Heart tells the tale of a prophetic witch named Angrboda who is punished by Odin, but finds love with Loki and regains the confidence to use her gift to save the world.

From the most ancient of tales, this novel forges a story of love, loss, and hope for the modern age.

Purchase a copy to read, or grab it from the library, and join us for discussion at Dog-Eared Books at 4 PM, on Monday, July 26. This book club is free to anyone who wishes to participate, no registration necessary.
