Little Chapel on the River: A Pub, a Town and the Search for What Matters Most

Gwendolyn Bounds

Book cover

Elise and I read this book aloud together. We picked it up because my sister went totally crazy over it a couple of years ago, and we have been into reading things about community. It was very enjoyable and, as I alluded to in my review of “The Great Good Place”, I think that perhaps narrative is a better medium through which to argue in favor of places like Guinan’s than expository writing.

Two regrets:

-Guinan’s closed in 2008, so we cannot go visit it.
-Elise would not do the Irish accent for Jim when she was reading :)

My Goodreads rating: 4 stars
