Women On The Move: Allegra Goodman, "Sam"

REGISTER

In her first historical novel, The Foundling, Ann Leary opens a window into the little-known embrace of eugenics by social “reformers” who, by today’s standards, held contradictory beliefs in women’s rights and locking away women deemed “unfit” to bear children. Inspired by the story of her grandmother, Leary takes us inside the Nettleton State Village for Feebleminded Women of Childbearing Age, where a drama unfolds between two young women in a tender tale of friendship and loyalty with a nail-biting climax.

Ann Leary is the New York Times bestselling author of four novels and a memoir. Her novel, The Good House, was adapted as a motion picture starring Sigourney Weaver and Kevin Kline.
