VOX


By Christina Dalcher


GBC Book of the Month March 2020


Average GBC Member Rating

In her debut novel, the sci-fi/dystopic VOX, Christina Dalcher sets the story in an America where half the population has been silenced. On the day the government decrees that women are no longer allowed to speak more than 100 words daily, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial—this can't happen here. Not in America. Not to her.

This is just the beginning. Soon women can no longer hold jobs. Girls are no longer taught to read or write. Females no longer have a voice. Before, the average person spoke sixteen thousand words a day, but now women only have one hundred to make themselves heard.

But this is not the end. For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice.

We know this will be an interesting read and we can’t wait for the discussions that will undoubtedly ensue at our book club this month, so grab your copy of the book and register now to join us this month!

GBC COVID-19 RESPONSE

I am writing to share an update on behalf of all of us at The Girly Book Club as we manage COVID-19. As we all know, the events of the past days and weeks have been unprecedented and our team continues to monitor and navigate this rapidly changing situation with the rest of the world.

At the GBC, we care deeply about doing what we can to keep our people and communities well – we are grounded in this intention, which makes difficult choices a little easier to make.

As a result, we have cancelled ALL of our global in-person monthly meetings for March. As a result, we will be holding a GLOBAL GBC Book Club, which we hope will appeal to our members far and wide (more info below.)

We’ll be honoring all tickets sold for March meetings and transferring them to April’s meetings or you can request a refund if you’d prefer.

Stay well. 
Erin Woodward
