August is Beach Reads month. In honor of this, the OGPL book club is reading Book Lovers by Emily Henry. We will be discussing this on September 1st.


Emily Henry is the renowned writer of "Beach Read" and "People we meet on Vacation". Her fun summery reads have been Who better to be the author of choice for August and celebrating Beach Reads Month! 

Nora Stephens’ life is books—she’s read them all—and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.

Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away—with visions of a small town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.

If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again—in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow—what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.


If you would like to join the book club, you can stop by, call, or email us! The librarian will be sure to provide you with a copy of this month's material and we look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.
