Decorah Area Chamber of Commerce - Event Information
Friday Book Group
Community Event Art Performances & Education Calendar
The Friday Book Group will meet at 2:00 p.m. Fri. Dec. 21st on the 2nd floor of the library to discuss Faith Sullivan’s “What a Woman Must Do.” When Celia Canby—Kate’s niece, Bess’s mother, and Harriet’s cousin—is killed in a car accident, it’s up to Kate and Harriet to raise Bess. Ten years later, on the day of the accident, the local newspaper in Harvester, MN, dredges up the story of the accident for a careless “Way Back When” piece, subjecting the women to another round of grief. Headstrong and closed off, Bess yearns to escape Harvester before she “goes bad.” But when she begins to trace the same path of mistakes her mother made—a risky relationship with a local married man—everything seems on the verge of falling apart.
