Authors Christina Dalcher (Vox) and Adam Nemett (We Can Save Us All) share their acclaimed debut novels that touch on issues of power, sexuality and technology. Book sales and signing will follow. FREE to attend and open to the public.

Why should you attend?

“The females in Dalcher’s electrifying debut are permitted to speak just 100 words a day—and that’s especially difficult for the novel’s protagonist, Jean, a neurolinguist. A futurist thriller that feels uncomfortably plausible.”—O, The Oprah Magazine

VOX is intelligent, suspenseful, provocative, and intensely disturbing—everything a great novel should be.” —Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Nemett’s recipe for disaster is sound―a dash of Pynchon, a hint of Neal Stephenson, and a nihilistic undertone that belies a semi-hopeful denouement… a confident, visceral debut that’s worth the ride.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Nemett’s wondrously fresh novel positively bursts with charm, heart, and invention.” ―Booklist, starred review
