Stay at Home Book Group Reads Convenience Store Woman

August 12, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Canton Public Library has a Facebook group on our CPL Facebook page to facilitate our book discussions while the library must remain closed to the public.  In our next Zoom meeting, we will discuss this quirky, compassionate, and funny novella.

You can borrow the ebook or audiobook on Hoopla.  Please email Beth Van Ness at bvanness@libraryconnection.info to register or join the group.  You will receive the Zoom invitation on the day of the discussion.  All adults are welcome to join our book discussion groups.

“Brilliant, witty, and sweet in ways that recall Amélie and Shopgirl. Keiko, a Tokyo woman in her 30s, finds her calling as a checkout girl at a national convenience store chain called Smile Mart: Quirky Keiko, who has never fit in, can finally pretend to be a normal person. Her story of conforming for convenience (literally) is one that woman all over the world know all too well, as is her family’s pressure to get married and settle down, but Murata’s sparkly writing and knack for odd, beautiful details are totally her own.”Vogue, “13 Books to Thrill, Entertain, and Sustain You This Summer”
