Online – UCM Book Club: Molly of the Mall: Literary Lass and Purveyor of Fine Footwear


After reading The Rose Code and The Splendid and the Vile - both very good books set in WWII, it was decided by consensus, that a humourous book would be our pick for summer reading. Molly of the Mall: Literary Lass and Purveyor of Fine Footwear, by Heidi L. M. Jacobs, won the Stephen Leacock Award for 2020.  Molly is a delightfully whimsical protagonist. Always informed by the characters from literature she loves, she approaches life in her own unique, and fanciful, way. Such fun to follow the retail nightmares and romantic comedy mishaps of this Austenian heroine of mid-90s in Edmonton. The story captures the malaise and pretension of every undergraduate English course ever. Molly is wicked good fun. We keep a list of possible books to read in the future. All our books are decided by consensus and the list is constantly evolving. If you would like to know more or to see our current list, please email Beverly Mark your calendars for the afternoon of Tuesday, September 26, and join us!
