The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry

Book Discussion
The Lincoln Public Library hosts a book discussiongroup that meets on the last Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM in the ProgramRoom. All are welcome to attend. On January 28th, we will be discussing The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin.

A faded sign hangs above the porch of the Victorian cottage that is home to Island Books. It bears the adage"NO MAN IS AN ISLAND; EVERY BOOK IS A WORLD."A. J. Fikry, the bookstore's irascible owner, is about to discover what that means. The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry reminds us of what saves us all from a life of loneliness and isolation: our sense of empathy; our ability to love and be loved; our willingness to care and be cared for.
