About the Author

Beth Kander lives in Chicago, where stories keep her warm. Her dystopian trilogy Original Syn debuts in September 2018. 

In addition to writing fiction, Beth is also an acclaimed playwright. Selected awards include a CORE Residency with American Theatre Company; Equity Library Theatre selection; Ashland New Plays Festival Winner 2016 and 2015; The Kilroys List (Honorable Mention, 2015 and 2016); Downstage Left Playwright Residency; Charles M. Getchell New Play Award; Eudora Welty New Play Awards (2013, 2010, 2008); and the Mississippi Theatre Association New Play Award. While living in Mississippi, Kander was named Best Writer by the Jackson Free Press three times.

Beth holds degrees from Brandeis University, the University of Michigan, and Mississippi University for Women.

PS: Possibly most interesting, a few years Beth's dog was accidentally in a viral video, which landed him appearances on Web Soup, Attack of the Show, and even in Jay Leno's monologue. Seriously. Hence her top professional goal (other than making the NYT Bestsellers List and making the world a better place) is to be marginally more famous than her dog.

My book club chose Original Syn as our October read, and all agreed that it was our favorite book of 2018. The themes about the nature of humanity, inequality of resources, and complex loyalties all resulted in rich discussions among our group. I've purchased copies as holiday gifts for all of the avid readers among my family and friends. Looking forward to continuing the discussion with them, and eagerly awaiting the next book in the trilogy.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It gives a fresh spin on the age-old issues of class and privilege, as well as impossible love. I can't wait for sequels!
