The Librarian

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Book Club -

by Sal­ley Vick­ers (£8.99, PB, Pen­guin) Any­one who en­joyed read­ing as a child will adore this charm­ing novel. As a new res­i­dent in East Mole, librarian Sylvia Black­well is keen to share her love of lit­er­a­ture with the

chil­dren but soon finds things aren’t that sim­ple. In her re­la­tion­ship with the chil­dren, though, we see the abil­ity of books to trans­form lives. Set in the 1950s, this nos­tal­gic love let­ter to chil­dren’s lit­er­a­ture is a real de­light.
