The Storied Life of AJ Fikry, by Gabrielle Zevin.
About the Book
“Marvelously optimistic about the future of books and bookstores and the people who love both.”—The Washington Post
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.

About the Open Fiction Book Group
Please Note: As the state of MA opens back up, and COVID-19 restrictions are removed, the Open Fiction Book Group will ease back into in-person meetings outside (weather permitting), upstairs on the patio at Odyssey Bookshop for the months of June, July, and August. The rain plan is to meet on zoom in the case of inclement weather, and Chrysler will make the call the day before based on the forecast.
The Open Fiction Book Group reads one paperback novel a month and its discussions are led by local author Chrysler Szarlan. The group typically meets the fourth Monday of each month at 6 p.m. It's free and everyone is welcome to join.
Selections for Odyssey-hosted bookclubs are available for purchase in the store or online and are 20% off for group members. Use code BOOKCLUB to apply disctount at checkout.
