Alie is the head book buyer at Brookline Booksmith. She loves mysteries (the psychologically more intense the better), great fiction (like Middlesex and Poisonwood Bible) and cookbooks. She is also obsessed with crossword puzzles.
With a well-read toddler to keep busy, Alie has begun to focus on children’s books, including board books like Gossie by Olivier Dunrea, and picture books like The Story of Ferdinand and llama llama mad at mama.
The Brookline Booksmith Book Club has been sharing great books for 10 years. It normally meets on the 2nd Monday of each month, at 7:30 pm in our Writer's and Reader's Room. No need to sign up, just show up.
