Tina and Kristian thought their love stories were over. Each on the other side of 60, they have lost a best friend and a wife, the ambitions of their youth, their hopes for a fresh start. Yearning for connection, they strike up a yearlong correspondence, brought together by a shared fascination with the Tollund Man, subject of Seamus Heaney's famous poem. As they open up to one another about their lives - daily routines, travel, nature, beauty, work, family - these two strangers become friends and then, perhaps, something more. Full of insight, humor, and candor, Tina and Kristian's letters are a testament to the joy that can come from the meeting of two intensely curious minds. Anne Youngson's Meet Me at the Museum is a celebration of long letters, kindred spirits, and the possibility of writing a new story for yourself, at any stage of life.

Shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award An Indie Next and LibraryReads Selection "The charmer of the summer...A touching, hopeful story about figuring out what matters and mustering the courage to make necessary changes." --NPR "How subtle. How perceptive...Meet Me at the Museum is gently provoking, delving into how we interact with our children, our spouses, our communities, but mostly with ourselves." --Minneapolis Star Tribune "A farmer's wife and a museum curator begin a life-changing correspondence in this lovely book by Anne Youngson, a first-time novelist at age 70." --Woman's Day (Editor's Choice) "A charming and lovely story that reminds us how love can transcend borders and everybody deserves a second chance at a happy life." --Fodor's "A beautiful, moving, and utterly mesmerizing tale about life, love, and starting over, Meet Me at the Museum will make even the most cynical listeners believe in second chances." --Bustle "Beautifully written and deeply moving, Meet Me at the Museum is a superb--and tenderhearted--debut that will interest anyone who's ever questioned how they became the person they are today." --Shelf Awareness "This sweet novel, which unfolds through a series of letters, is a short but spellbinding story of life and friendship." --Hello Giggles "A thoughtful meditation on buried passions, regrets, love, grief, and loneliness.
