We are so excited to welcome back Nancy Thayer, a beloved Nantucket author, here at the bookshop to talk about and sign copies of her new book, Let it Snow! This event is SOLD OUT!!
"For the first time since 2014, Nancy Thayer brings Nantucket to life at Christmastime with LET IT SNOW (Ballantine Hardcover | On Sale October 15, 2019). Readers are sure to connect with the heartwarming holiday story of Christina Antonioni, a Nantucket shopkeeper who discovers that Christmas is the perfect occasion to make unexpected friendships, warm the coldest of hearts—and maybe even find love. Christina Antonioni is preparing for the holidays at her Nantucket toy shop, unpacking last-minute shipments and decorating for her loyal Christmas shoppers, but when her Scrooge of a landlord, Oscar Bittlesman, raises her rent, it seems nearly impossible for Christina to continue business on the wharf. Even so, Christina hopes there is a warm heart underneath Oscar's steely exterior. When she bonds with Wink, his sweet, young granddaughter who frequents the shop, it becomes clear that perhaps he isn't so cold after all. And with the help of Wink's uncle, who happens to be a charming and very handsome bachelor, this may be the best Christmas any of them could have ever imagined. Weaving together themes of friendship, love, family, and self-discovery, Nancy Thayer’s LET IT SNOW is the perfect holiday love story." (Karen Fink, Penguin Random House).
