Book Group: "Unless" by Carol Shields

Join us for our monthly book group! February's book is Unless by Carol Shields. No sign up or RSVP necessary. Just read the book and join us for good conversation, insight, a few laughs, and cookies!


Forty-four-year-old Reta Winters, wife, mother, writer, and translator, is living a happy life until one of her three daughters drops out of university to sit on a downtown street corner silent and cross-legged with a begging bowl in her lap and a placard round her neck that says "Goodness."

The final book from Pulitzer Prize-winner Carol Shields, Unless is a candid and deeply moving novel from one of the twentieth century's most accomplished and beloved authors.

Carol Shields was born in Chicago and lived in Canada for most of her life. She is the author of three short story collections and eight novels, including the Pulitzer Prize -- winning The Stone Diaries and Larry's Party, winner of the Orange Prize.
