Roundabout Books is thrilled to welcome Leni Zumas to Central Oregon on June 16th at 7pm! Leni is currently making waves in the literary world with her moving new novel Red Clocks. She will be speaking about her work and process.
In this ferociously imaginative book, abortion is once again illegal in America, in-vitro fertilization is banned, and the Personhood Amendment grants rights of life, liberty, and property to every embryo. In a small Oregon fishing town, five very different women navigate these new barriers. This gripping speculative fiction novel is smart, timely, and includes characters that are real, coarse, impolite, lost, driven, and compassionate women who struggle to find their own paths rather than the ones laid out in front of them.
Leni's worked has been reviewed in dozens of noteworthy publications including The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post. She was recently interviewed on NPR State of Wonder which you can listen to here.
