Books on Tap

Tuesday, March 27, 2018 Books on Tap


Books on Tap, Phoenixville Public Library’s book discussion group for adults in their 20s and 30s, will meet next on Tuesday, March 27, 7:00 PM at Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant, 130 E. Bridge Street, Phoenixville. The group will discuss The Power by Naomi Alderman. In The Power, the world is a recognizable place: there’s a rich Nigerian boy who lounges around the family pool; a foster kid whose religious parents hide their true nature; an ambitious American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But then a vital new force takes root and flourishes, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power–they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world drastically resets.

From award-winning author Naomi Alderman, THE POWER is speculative fiction at its most ambitious and provocative, at once taking us on a thrilling journey to an alternate reality, and exposing our own world in bold and surprising ways. The novel has been named one of the “best books of 2017” by the New York Times, Washington Post, and other media outlets.
