Chance and Possibility

The Collected Works of A.J. Fikry is the enchanting, funny and touching novel by Gabrielle Zevin. Set in Island Books, a struggling independent bookshop at the heart of an island community off the American coast, it is the place where life lessons gleaned from reading are passed on. Today, Maya and A.J. open a book each, and what they find inside leads to delight and opportunity. Madeleine Potter and Hari Dhillon read.

Abridged by Sally Marmion and produced by Elizabeth Allard.
