Event Retired Readers Book Group

January 9, 2019 | 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

The Retired Readers Book Group invites you to join our monthly book discussion at the Newburyport Senior Community Center, located at 331 High Street in Newburyport. This group meets on the second Wednesday each month. This month's title is: The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan.

Nina Redmond is a librarian with a gift for finding the perfect book for her readers. But can she write her own happy-ever-after? Nina is a literary matchmaker. Pairing a reader with that perfect book is her passion...and also her job. Or at least it was. Until yesterday, she was a librarian in the hectic city. But now the job she loved is no more. Determined to make a new life for herself, Nina moves to a sleepy village many miles away. There she buys a van and transforms it into a bookmobile--a mobile bookshop that she drives from neighborhood to neighborhood, changing one life after another with the power of storytelling. From helping her grumpy landlord deliver a lamb, to sharing picnics with a charming train conductor who serenades her with poetry, Nina discovers there's plenty of adventure, magic, and soul in a place that's beginning to feel like home... a place where she just might be able to write her own happy ending.
