About The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry:

A grieving curmudgeon finds new life after the unexpected arrival of a child in his bookstore, an event that brings the community together—first to help Fikry and the child, and then for the joy they find in discussing books with one another. Join us as we celebrate community, family (of all configurations!), people connecting through reading, and local independent bookstores in MARCH 2019!

“Captures the joy of connecting people and books...Irresistible.”Booklist
