Published DateGILFORD — Called inventive, wonderfully strange, and genuinely enchanting, part-time Gilford Library Assistant Abi Maxwell's debut book, Lake People, is already making a splash with reviewers and readers alike.
Published by Knopf, the synopsis reads; "Set in a small New Hampshire town, Lake People tells the story of crisscrossing lives as Alice Thornton, given up for adoption as a baby, searches for the truth about her own life. As Alice edges ever closer to her past, Lake People beautifully evokes the interweaving of family history and individual fate, and the intangible connections we feel to the place where we were born."
Abi's much anticipated first book was released on February, 19 and the Library kicked off the release with an evening Launch Party.
It was standing room only as Abi read an excerpt of her book and autographed copies. Over 80 people turned out in support of Abi at the first stop on her book tour. Abi will be reading all around New England as part of the Lake People tour.
