Wednesday Afternoon Book Club

The Wednesday Afternoon Book Club meets on the third Wednesday of each month, from 1 to 2 p.m. In November, participants will meet on Nov. 21 to discuss “The Little Paris Bookshop” by Nina George.

“The Little Paris Bookshop,” an international bestseller filled with warmth and adventure, is a love letter to books, meant for anyone who believes in the power of stories to shape people’s lives.

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.

Join Perdu and the Wednesday Afternoon Book Club as Perdu searches for peace with his loss and the end of the story.

Reserve your copy and register for this free program in the library or by phone at (248) 588-5500.
