Halstead Merrimack: Bookery Book Club
Get Lost in an Unexpected Love Story at the Bookery Book Club on September 15th
If you enjoy literature that departs sharply from the mainstream, the Bookery Book Club is perfect for you. This local bookstore specializes in lesser-known authors exploring unexpected themes via offbeat characters, and so does its book club! Every month, the book club meets to discuss a new novel. For September, it’s Light From Uncommon Stars by Ryka Aoki. Support the small business by purchasing your copy at Bookery Manchester or by ordering the audio version through Libro.fm with Bookery as your chosen bookstore. Once you have the novel in hand, dive into the fantastical world of Shizuka Satomi, an unexpected protagonist who’s actually working for the devil. In order to avoid her own demise, she has to trick seven violin prodigies (like herself) into selling their souls for fame and fortune. She’s just about to entrap her seventh victim when she falls in love with a former starship captain after a meet-cute at a doughnut shop. To learn how the rest of her story unfolds, read the book and then come to book club on Thursday, September 15th at 6 p.m.
