Ward’s Pick: This debut novel by Norfolk, VA native Dalcher comes out on August 21st and is a must read for anyone looking for great dystopian fiction. Reminiscent of The Handmaid’s Tale, Vox takes place in America just after the religious right has taken over the government and has made the subjugation of women a central focus. To implement this oppression, each woman is only allowed to speak 100 words a day and is fitted with an electric shock-inducing bracelet triggered by any infractions. Neurolinguist Dr. Jean McClellan finds herself in a position to fight against this misogynistic tyranny, but her own secrets and those she will uncover threaten to not only destroy her but those she loves as well. Catch Dalcher when she reads at Fountain Books on August 22!

About the book: Set in a United States in which half the population has been silenced, Vox is the harrowing, unforgettable story of what one woman will do to protect herself and her daughter. On the day the government decrees that women are no longer allowed more than one hundred words per day, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial. This can't happen here. Not in America. Not to her. 

This is just the beginning...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.  ...not the end. For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice.
