Adult Book Club Discussion: "The Little Paris Bookshop" by Nina George

Please join us for the next meeting of our Adult Book Club scheduled for Tuesday, August 9, at 1:00 p.m.  We will be discussing the book "The Little Paris Bookshop"  by local author, Nina George.

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. Joined by a bestselling but blocked author and a lovelorn Italian chef, Perdu travels along the country’s rivers, dispensing his wisdom and his books, showing that the literary world can take the human soul on a journey to heal itself.

Internationally bestselling and filled with warmth and adventure, 
The Little Paris Bookshop is a love letter to books, meant for anyone who believes in the power of stories to shape people's lives.


Copies of the book are available at the Library.  Please contact the Library for meeting location.
