West University Book Group-November 4

too much happinessPlease join us to discuss Too Much Happiness, by Alice Munro.  

Wednesday, November 4, at 11 a.m.

“More than virtually anyone else’s, Alice Munro’s stories unfold in surprising ways that nonetheless seem perfectly right. They are marvels of unhurried compression in which precision looks casual, in which everything is clearly in its place, though no one else might think to put it exactly thus.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
