Beer, Cheese, and home to the largest Woolly Mammoth ever excavated....Our May 2024 Literary Road Trip Box takes us to the state of Wisconsin! 


Our featured book is Amy E. Reichert's The Optimist's Guide to Letting Go. This family drama follows three generations of women who are each trying to figure out their own way, without stepping on each other's toes. Gina is stuck in the middle. Gina is taking care of an aging mother (who has some secrets) and a sullen teenage daughter, as she struggles to run a grilled-cheese truck business, the dream of her recently deceased husband. A relatable story for those feeling a bit overwhelmed with life. Also, be prepared to crave grilled cheese sandwiches!


Our indie bookstore collaboration for May is with The Lion's Mouth Bookstore. The Lion's Mouth Bookstore is located in Green Bay, Wisconsin and we have included their store logo magnets in the May Box.


We couldn't have a Wisconsin box without cheese. Enjoy a Lemon Cheesecake Dip Mix from Lamb & Thyme. Lamb & Thyme is located in Baraboo, Wisconsin and they are celebrating their 35th anniversary.


To go with the grilled cheese theme we have "Sweet Dreams are Grilled with Cheese" sticker from Big Moods, a small company from Michigan. Our bookish-item from May is a pair of bookstack stud earrings from Lilliput Little Things. The earrings are designed and handmade in New Orleans.
