Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women's Literary Society 

  Request this author
Set in 1962, Miss Dreamsville is the story of a middle-aged woman from Boston who moves with her family to a small Florida town where she starts a literary salon and shakes up the status quo. The book club provides a haven for the town's social outcasts who find, for the first time in their lives, a place to belong. The book also explores regional tensions between Northerners and Southerners in the USA. The novel was a book club pick for Simon & Schuster, a Reader's Digest Select Edition, and a main selection of the Pulpwood Queens, an international book club with more than 600 chapters. It is currently being translated into Portuguese. Miss Dreamsville was selected by Library Journal (the American Library Association) in an article recommending books about book clubs. The article offers a full review of Miss Dreamsville (the second glowing review by an ALA publication) and called it "a heartwarming and poignant tale."
