"Mannix envisioned a store just like Nantucket Bookworks, but replicating the magic of her childhood haven seemed out of reach—until her husband arranged for her to have a breakfast meeting with Wendy Hudson, the owner of Nantucket Bookworks and Mitchell’s Book Corner, as well as a founding partner of Cisco Brewers/Triple Eight Distillery/Nantucket Vineyard, also on Nantucket.
