Mrs. Dalloway
by Virginia Woolf

Clarissa Dalloway prepares for a high society party on a June day in post- World War I London. Upon returning from a flower shop, the affluent Dalloway is visited by an old flame, Peter Walsh, who makes a surprise appearance to ask if she is happy with her husband Richard. Published in 1925, Woolf's stream of consciousness storytelling was a departure from previous Edwardian authors.

This group meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month (excluding holidays). All MI members are welcome to drop in to these meetings.
