Vox by Christina Dalcher
In an alternate version of America women are no longer allowed to speak more than one hundred words in a day. Women lose their jobs and girls are no longer taught to read or write. One woman in particular decides to fight back: for herself, for her daughter's future, and for every woman silenced.

About

The 1501 Ellinwood Street library building is the realization of a longheld dream of the library board, staff and community partners. Located in the heart of downtown Des Plaines, the four story, 82,000 square foot building represents the community's commitment to reading, lifelong learning, and a center for family activities. A grand central staircase and large windows provide a wealth of natural light and illuminate the building at night.
