The ladies at Old Palm Golf Club are definitely well read, and those in the Ladies Book Club are particularly literate. They have read and discussed several bestsellers this season, and this monthâs selectionâ âThe Storied Life of A.J. Fikryââis another well-respected novel. Written by Gabrielle Zevin, the book has earned rave reviews ranging from âfunny, tender and movingâ to âan endearing story of redemption and transformation that will sing in your heart for a very, very long time.â The story follows the life of an irascible bookstore owner whose prize collection of Poe poems is stolen. He becomes even crankier and more isolated until a small package mysteriously arrives at his bookstore. His transformation begins... Like all the books features in the Old Palm Ladies Book Club, this one has plenty of layers and character changes for the ladies to discuss. These book club events in the Ladies Lounge are always well attended and wonderfully enlightening.
