Marissa, Kansas Room Librarian, said this of this weeks #staffpick 〰️
"If you can't stop binge-watching The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu, then check out another one of Margaret Atwood's great dystopian novels, Oryx and Crake. It alternates between a time in the not so distant future where we have taken science to an exciting new level and just a short time later when we have pushed too far. I came across this book in high school and it has been my absolute favorite ever since. It's the first in Atwood's MaddAddam trilogy, so if you enjoy it then there's even more story to love!" 🐽
.
I think it’s important to note that Marissa insisted on bringing her personal copy of the book for our photo. It’s that good! 😆
