Join us for a happy hour and conversation with Christina - books will be available for purchase - before we head over to Fountain Bookstore for her authors talk. Tickets are free but please RSVP here so we know how much to pour!

More on VOX (via TIME Magazine):

The average person speaks 16,000 words per day. But what if women were limited to just 100? That is the premise of Vox, a forthcoming novel from the linguist Christina Dalcher. “Last year,” she says, “for a doomsday-themed contest, my inner linguist (who’s got a tremendously loud voice) suggested I imagine a world without language, which was terrifying, but not as terrifying as the next idea — where I imagined a world where only half of the population had language taken away from them.”
