Meet Me at the Museum by Anne Youngson

Meet me at the museum   hb

We are looking for reading groups to read and review this debut novel.

About the book
Meet Me at the Museum tells of a man and a woman with more of their life behind them than ahead, both of whom face new beginnings when they connect unexpectedly through letters and a shared love of ancient history, personal treasures and nature.

Debut novelist Anne Youngson has created an enduring novel of ideas, full of grace and humanity, and charged with emotion. Meet Me at The Museum is a deep and luminous novel of self discovery and second chances. In a story that is at once urgent and tender, Youngson at once reminds us how the power of words can tell us so much we don’t yet know of ourselves, and polishes the everyday until it gleams.

Apply by 15 March.
