The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
A. J. Fikry’s life is not at all what he expected it to be. His wife has died, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and now his prized possession, a rare collection of Poe poems, has been stolen. Slowly but surely, he is isolating himself from all the people of Alice Island. Even the books in his store have stopped holding pleasure for him. These days, A.J. can only see them as a sign of a world that is changing too rapidly. And then a mysterious package appears at the bookstore. It’s a small package, but large in weight. It’s that unexpected arrival that gives A. J. Fikry the opportunity to make his life over, the ability to see everything anew. Please note that we collect $1 at each meeting, to help cover the cost of using the Meetup Web site.

This book club is for men and women of all ages. We read all types of books, although they are primarily contemporary fiction, and we are open to all suggestions. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Cherry Hill, except in December. You can find us in the middle of the store, near the electronics section. You are welcome to come even if you haven't finished the book. So come out and join us!
