The Simpering, North Dakota, Literary Society (vol 1)
Farika Zingarella, card shark and ex-nun, won the town of Simpering in the greatest poker game ever played. Gathering four like-minded female geniuses to her side, the Mighty Five established a prairie empire that could hold off the world – and did. There was little to laugh about in 1919 – WWI had ended, but fascism would soon be on the rise. American women held fast on the suffrage question. Then came the Mighty Five. Trust us – you have never lived in a town like this.
