The Girls, the highly anticipated debut novel by Emma Cline, tells the story of Evie, a young woman who gets drawn into the mysterious world of a gang of girls and quickly finds herself immersed in their world and in over her head. Loosely based on the women involved in the Manson Family murders, Cline's work offers deeply insightful observations about girls and the women they become. The author rose to prominence when she signed a three-book deal in 2014 at the age of 25, amassing praise from the likes of Lena Dunham and Mark Haddon. Now, she'll join fellow writer Claire Bidwell Smith at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club of CA for a conversation about both her riveting first book and her rise in the literary world.
