The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin

"Funny, tender, and moving, The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry reminds us all exactly why we read and why we love."* 

A. J. Fikry’s life is not at all what he expected it to be. He lives alone, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and now his prized possession, a rare collection of Poe poems, has been stolen. But when a mysterious package appears at the bookstore, its unexpected arrival gives Fikry the chance to make his life over--and see everything anew. 

“This novel has humor, romance, a touch of suspense, but most of all love--love of books and bookish people and, really, all of humanity in its imperfect glory.” -- Eowyn Ivey, author of The Snow Child 

“Marvelously optimistic about the future of books and bookstores and the people who love both.” -- The Washington Post 

Copies of the book may be available to borrow. Please contact the library at 360 423-8110.
