The Collected Works of A.J. Fikry is the enchanting, funny and touching love story by Gabrielle Zevin. Set in Island Books, a quirky independent bookshop at the heart of an island community off the American coast, it is the place where life lessons gleaned from reading are learned. Today, Maya reflects on her past and the mother she never knew. Madeleine Potter and Hari Dhillon read.

Abridged by Sally Marmion and produced by Elizabeth Allard.
