Upcoming Doing Literature Discussion: Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson

On Saturday, March 8th, 2014 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am, the ongoing "Doing Literature" discussion group will meet at the Hemet Public Library at 300 East Latham Avenue to discuss the novel Housekeeping, by Marilynne Robinson.

 First published in 1980, Housekeeping was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and awarded the PEN/Hemingway Award for best first novel. Time magazine listed the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005.

The tale revolves around three generations of women and a meditation on literal and figurative housekeeping. The discussion is free, and while it is helpful to have read the novel, it is not necessary to participate. Interested participants can also visit the website at and on twitter @hemetliterature if you want to get additional updates and posts.
