MARTHA MOODY

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24; 7 PM

MARTHA MOODY will introduce her new novel, Sharp and Dangerous Virtues, which is set in Dayton, Ohio in 2047. It’s a much different Dayton than today. In response to food and water shortages, we find the U.S. government has developed a successful agricultural area—known as “the Heartland Grid” – just north of the city. The Grid and its valuable human and agricultural resources are now being threatened—or possibly seduced—by a multinational enemy force and all of America feels threatened, too.

The book portrays ordinary individuals caught in situations they had never planned for or even imagined. What will they do? What choices are left for them, and what choices have been taken away? Whom and what can they trust?

Martha Moody has written other novels, including Best Friends and Sometimes Mine. She lives in the Dayton area.
