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!

Homeland: And Other Stories by Barbara Kingsolver

With the same wit and sensitivity that have come to characterize her highly praised and beloved novels, Barbara Kingsolver gives us a rich and emotionally resonant collection of twelve stories. Spreading her memorable characters over landscapes ranging from Northern California to the hills of eastern Kentucky and the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, Kingsolver tells stories of hope, momentary joy, and powerful endurance. In every setting, Kingsolver's distinctive voice— at times comic, but often heartrending—rings true as she explores the twin themes of family ties and the life choices one must ultimately make alone.
