Join us for a reading and conversation with Chelsea Bieker. Her debut novel, Godshot, tells the story of a teenage girl’s feminist awakening and her search for her missing mother. For fans of Janet Fitch’s White Oleander and Emma Cline’s The Girls, Godshot is a dazzling literary debut.
“Fiercely written and endlessly readable, a novel like this is a godsend.” -Entertainment Weekly
“Delving into patriarchal religious zealotry, Bieker’s excellent debut plants themes seen in Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale into a realistic California setting that will linger with readers.” -Publisher’s Weekly
“Bieker’s debut novel is a vivid and cutting exploration of unconditional female love. It observes how mothers shape daughters, biological or otherwise, and how daughters must ultimately learn to mother themselves.” -Booklist (Starred Review)
