Book Club selection of the month

"The Little Paris Bookshop"

By Nina George

New readers are always welcome!

Thursday, June 16th @ 11:30 a.m.

Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary.

From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls.

The only person he can't seem to heal through literature is himself; he's still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which he has never opened.

After Perdu is finally tempted to read the letter, he hauls anchor and departs on a mission to the south of France, hoping to make peace with his loss and discover the end of the story.
