Tina and Anders 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 Anders'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.
