November 14th at 1:00 p.m. - Lunch 'N Books: The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George
Join us on November 14 at 1:00 p.m. as we discuss The Little Paris Bookshop by 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. Twenty one years later he reads the letter. What follows is simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming. Nina George’s impressionistic prose takes the reader on a journey not just through the glories of France and the wonders of books, but through the whole range of human emotions.
