Enoch Pratt Free Library Hosts Womb Launch

The Enoch Pratt Free Library is hosting the official launch of Womb: a novel in utero. The release reading is part of the Enoch Pratt’s Writers LIVE series supported in part by the Miss Howard Hubbard Adult Programming Fund.

Past Writers LIVE authors have included Terry McMillan, Colson Whitehead, Roxane Gay, and Ron Tanner.

Writers LIVE: Eric D. Goodman, Womb: a novel in utero takes place on Tuesday, March 28 at 6:30 p.m.

Early readers and reviewers of Womb have called the book “engagingly original,” “strange and wonderful,” “amazing,” “a cocktail of all human emotion,” “brave,” “full of wisdom and goodwill,” and say that it “has a lot to say” and is “written with sophistication and poetry.”

Reviews have compared Womb to Ian McEwan’s Nutshell and Emma Donoghue’s Room, and said, “Goodman rises to the challenge posed by the foetus’ limited perspective, relating a story of betrayal and domestic turmoil through the filter of the uterine wall.”

Womb: a novel in utero will be officially released on Tuesday, March 21 and can be found in bookstores in person and online. Books will be available for buying and signing at the library event on March 28.
