Unpunished by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
The Unpunished by Charlotte Perkins Gilman Written in the late 1920s and never before published, this mystery by the author of such early feminist classics as The Yellow Wall-Paper is a major literary find. Gilman's first and only detective novel recounts the murder of a pernicious attorney who has been shot, stabbed, bludgeoned, strangled, and poisoned. Unpunished's husband-and-wife detective team present a model of true partnership, while the unfolding details of the case offer poignant evidence of the injustice that poor and powerless women can suffer at the hands of a brutal man. Gilman weaves her case for women's freedom and empowerment into a mystery rich in twists and turns, colorful characters, red herrings, suspense and wry humor.

What we're about

We are ladies that love to chat about their latest read, share their favorite books, make friends with other book lovin' ladies (sorry guys), and just have some fun! We meet on the third Monday evening of each month to discuss our monthly group read. Other events may be scheduled, such as volunteering, dining out, or other bookish events.
