CANCELLED — March Book Club - DAY
Time & Location
Bring your kids and we'll talk about the book while they play in this bonus book club meeting!
From bestselling author Christina Dalcher, VOX, is the harrowing, unforgettable story of what one woman will do to protect herself and her daughter. Set in the United States in which half the population has been silenced, on the day the government decrees that women are no longer allowed to speak more than one hundred words per day, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial. This can’t happen here. Not in America. Not to her. Soon women are not permitted to hold jobs. Girls are not taught to read or write. Females no longer have a voice. Before, the average person spoke sixteen thousand words each day, but now women have only one hundred to make themselves heard. For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice. This book is one of Entertainment Weekly's books to read after The Handmaid's Tale.
