Call in to speak with the host
Can't get enough of the dystopia genre?
Tune in to Writestream Tuesday on August 26 at 1 p.m. Eastern when host Dariaanne welcomes Ordinance 93 author Lilia Fabry to discuss her timely and haunting debut novel:
With the blessing of the 55th President of the United States, the newly formed Office of Familial Equality promises to end all the nation’s problems including poverty and illness with the Family Protection Act. The only catch is all pregnancies must be registered and approved.
All eyes turn to the first person to break the law, Justin Winters, an electrician suddenly turned subject of national attention. Joining him in the escape are the women known only as Spring, Summer, and Fall as they work together to run from the bureaucracy and national spotlight that pursues them.
Once the secretary of the OFE learns Winters has tested positive for causing multiple unregistered pregnancies, he comes after him full force, as the future of the Act rests upon if and how Winters and the women are brought in. Their successful defiance would lead to more defectors, their capture providing an opportunity to make an example of them all.
With little more than the clothes on their backs, the four set off on a quest for freedom and to keep the identity of the mother a secret. Most of all, they are running from an ordinance in the law which threatens what they hold most dear.
At 2:05 p.m., the Right Wing Riot takes over with their unique brand of "public service satire." Join us!
