Amy Meyerson will read from her poignant debut novel, in which a woman inherits a beloved bookstore and sets forth on a journey of self-discovery.
Miranda Brooks grew up in the stacks of her eccentric uncle Billy's bookstore, solving the inventive scavenger hunts he created just for her. But on Miranda's 12th birthday, Billy has a mysterious falling-out with her mother and suddenly disappears from Miranda's life. She doesn't hear about him again until sixteen years later when she receives unexpected news: Billy has died and left her Prospero Books, which is teetering on bankruptcy - and one final scavenger hunt.
"Terrifically fun... Part riddle, part mystery, part family drama, part a bookstore lover's dream, and then more." --Aimee Bender, New York Times bestselling author
