Join the Bad Girls at Read 007 for a discussion on 'The Home for Unwanted Girls' with author Joanna Goodman - a bestselling Canadian author / CEO / mother of two - moderated by former culture editor of ELLE Canada Sarah Laing.

The Home for Unwanted Girls is an unforgettable page-turner based on a little-known piece of Canadian history: the “Duplessis Orphans” in 1950s Quebec who were falsely declared mentally ill and confined to psychiatric institutions. This powerhouse novel tells the story of a young unwed mother who is forced to abandon her baby and the lengths to which the two will go to find one another again.
