The book discussion group will meet, for those who are fully vaccinated, beginning at 11:30 am for lunch, with discussion to follow at 12:00 pm. The book chosen for January is The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry, by Gabrielle Zevin. An utterly delightful novel of love and second chances, this book deals with a middle-aged bookseller mourning his lost wife, a feisty publisher’s rep, and a charmingly precocious abandoned child who come together on a small island off the New England coast. When his most prized possession, a rare collection of Poe poems, is stolen, bookstore owner A. J. Fikry begins isolating himself from his friends, family, and associates before receiving a mysterious package that compels him to remake his life.
