Thursday Book Group discusses Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver

Meeting Room B
Thursday, Aug 22, 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Willa Knox and her husband followed all the rules as parents and professionals, and have nothing to show for it but debts and a brick house that is falling apart. In another time, Thatcher Greenwood’s employer forbids him to speak of work just published by Charles Darwin, and his family bristles at the risk of scandal. Thatcher’s friendships with a woman scientist and a renegade newspaper editor draw him into a vendetta with the town’s powerful men. Unsheltered is the story of two families, in two centuries, who live at the corner of Sixth and Plum in Vineland, New Jersey, navigating what seems to be the end of the world as they know it.
