We at Village Books have been huge fans of Barbara Kingsolver's writing since The Bean Trees was published in 1988 and became an instant classic. Through the years, her books have received critical acclaim and won multiple awards. 

In celebration of the release of Barabara Kingsolver's newest novel, Unsheltered, on October 16, 2018, Village Books introduces a limited-run open book group that will delve into the rich history of her past books on the second Tuesday of each month, culminating in a discussion of Unsheltered in November of 2019. Each discussion is will be facilitated by one of Village Books' many booksellers or by a special guest. Come to one or join us for all 12 as we enjoy a year of Reading Kingsolverly!

Small Wonder: Essays by Barbara Kingsolver

Whether she is contemplating the Grand Canyon, her vegetable garden, motherhood, genetic engineering, or the future of a nation founded on the best of all human impulses, these essays are grounded in the author's belief that our largest problems have grown from the earth's remotest corners as well as our own backyards, and that answers may lie in both those places. Sometimes grave, occasionally hilarious, and ultimately persuasive, Small Wonder is a hopeful examination of the people we seem to be, and what we might yet make of ourselves.
