Book Signing With Jeanne Godfroy
November 25 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us for a book signing of Midgard, Jeanne Godfroy’s debut novel!
It is the mid-22nd century, a time in which humankind has reached a point of no return with respect to the destruction of its habitat on Earth. The only ray of hope is the Human Resiliency Program—a conglomeration of government sponsored efforts to preserve human life until such time as the Earth is able to recover. Unfortunately, the program’s projects are only capable of saving small, select members of the population, and the competition to assess into and remain in those programs is fierce.
Sam Richmond is one of the lucky few who has made it into one of these programs. However, his elation is short-lived as people close to him disappear, his headquarters is attacked, and he learns of a plot to selectively destroy nearly all remaining human life on the planet. Sam must unravel complex misinformation and find clues that will lead him to the source of the disappearances and the one person capable of salvaging civilization.
Jeanne Hull Godfroy is a mother, wife, and veteran who has dabbled in the fields of history, international relations, counterinsurgency, and information technology. After graduating from West Point, Jeanne was commissioned as a Military Intelligence officer. She subsequently deployed to Bosnia, Iraq, and South Korea, and she merged her experiences with academic research while completing her doctorate at Princeton University.
The genesis of her debut novel, Midgard, was Dr. Godfroy’s love of fiction— and science fiction in particular– and her growing concern about humankind’s poor stewardship of its own habitat. It is the first in what she intends as a series of novels about how human society might respond once it realizes the devastating impacts of the willful destruction of its environment.
