Program Description

Librarian Paul McNeil will lead a discussion of Emily Henry's NYT bestselling novel People We Meet on Vacation. Participants are encouraged (but not required) to read the book in advance. Ask for a copy at the library’s information desk.

From Publisher's Weekly:

Henry’s latest rom-com offers plenty of lighthearted summertime fun. Poppy Wright met Alex Nilsen on the first day of college orientation, and they never got along—until a road trip sparked a deep friendship and a tradition of taking a yearly summer vacation together. But Poppy and Alex haven’t spoken much since a disastrous trip two summers ago. She arranges a shoestring-budget vacation to Palm Springs that she hopes will fix everything. Flashbacks to each past summer trip make for fun travelogues that highlight both characters’ understandable but frustrating refusal to discuss their feelings. This is a strong choice for readers looking for a vicarious summer vacation of their own.
