The Westport Library is very pleased to announce the selection for the 20th anniversary of WestportREADs:  
We are thrilled to be hosting the New York Times bestselling author V.E. Schwab on February 26th!
"Completely absorbed me enough 
to make me forget the real world." 
― Jodi Picoult, Washington Post

A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget. France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets. Thus begins a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world. 

WestportREADS 2022 also includes companion books for younger readers:


Created in 2002, WestportREADS is designed to deepen engagement in literature by the community reading the featured book and joining in a book discussion and programs. WestportREADS is supported through a generous bequest by the estate of Jerry A. Tishman.

This year’s keynote event will take place on Saturday February 26th at 3:00 pm in the Library.  The program will also be available through Zoom.

BOOK REVIEWS
“For someone damned to be forgettable, Addie LaRue is a most delightfully unforgettable character, and her story is the most joyous evocation of unlikely immortality.”

― Neil Gaiman, author of American Gods and winner of multiple Nebula, Hugo, and Locus Awards
"The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is the kind of book you encounter only once in a lifetime. . . . A defiant, joyous rebellion against time, fate, and even death itself―and a powerful reminder that the only magic great enough to conquer all of it is love.".”

― Peng Shepherd, author of The Book of M
“Schwab’s writing is warm and intense, and the passages set in the past often make you feel as if you’re reading by candlelight...The book is an elegant comment on the erasure of women from recorded history, but not a pointed one; you never feel that Addie LaRue is a metaphor. She is a woman fighting literally to be seen while bearing witness to her own life, and I rooted for her throughout.”
