Staff Pick of the Week: The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald

This week’s staff pick is the perfect companion for a day at the beach.  The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald is a charming and delightful tale that reminds all readers why they love books. Several staff members loved this book and called it a fantastic choice for book clubs!

“Broken Wheel, Iowa, has never seen anyone like Sara, who traveled all the way from Sweden just to meet her book-loving pen pal, Amy. When she arrives, however, she finds Amy’s funeral guests just leaving. The residents of Broken Wheel are happy to look after their bewildered visitor-there’s not much else to do in a dying small town that’s almost beyond repair.

You certainly wouldn’t open a bookstore. And definitely not with the tourist in charge. You’d need a vacant storefront (Main Street is full of them), books (Amy’s house is full of them), and…customers.  The bookstore might be a little quirky. Then again, so is Sara. But Broken Wheel’s own story might be more eccentric and surprising than she thought.  A heartwarming reminder of why we are booklovers, this is a sweet, smart story about how books find us, change us, and connect us.” —Amazon
