One of the buzz titles at Midwinter in Dallas, The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker (Random House, June), has been optioned by River Road Entertainment.

Published as an adult title, this apocalyptic novel envisions what would happen if the earth’s rotation began to slow down. It features an 11-year-old heroine and is expected to have strong cross-over appeal. PW, in the first pre-pub review, says,

A triumph of vision, language, and terrifying momentum, the story also feels eerily plausible, as if the problems weve been worrying about all along pale in comparison to what might actually bring our end.

The book is available as an egalley from Edelweiss and NetGalley.
