Booked for Lunch

Tuesday, July 6, at Noon

Our pick for July is "The Bookshop on the Corner" by Jenny Colgan.

Nina Redmond is a literary matchmaker. Pairing a reader with that perfect book is her passion ... and her job. Or at least it was. Until yesterday, she was a librarian in the hectic city. But now the job she loved is no more. Determined to make a new life for herself, Nina moves to a sleepy village many miles away. There she buys a van and transforms it into a bookmobile -- a mobile bookshop that she drives from neighborhood to neighborhood, changing one life after another with the power of storytelling. From helping her grumpy landlord deliver a lamb, to sharing picnics with a charming train conductor who serenades her with poetry, Nina discovers there's plenty of adventure, magic, and soul in a place that's beginning to feel like home, a place where she just might be able to write her own happy ending.

The Booked for Lunch discussion group is facilitated by Library Director Karen Demers. Available through Hoopla.
