". . . desperately trying to coax sleep, opening my eyes every few seconds to check their faded gleam, and imagining paradise as a place where a sleepless neighbor reads an endless book by the light of an eternal candle." 
— Vladimir Nabokov

“The individual member of the social community often receives his information via visual, symbolic channels.” I went back and forth over it, and translated. You know what it means? “People read.” 
― Richard P. Feynman




Cordelia Schreiber

“A writer only begins a book. A reader finishes it.” ― Samuel Johnson

After living in California for several years, Cordelia returned to Windham to help re-build after Hurricane Irene nearly destroyed the town.  Nearly 7 years later, Cordelia is the proud

co-proprietor & sommelier of Ze Wine Bar.  Her positive attitude and fortitude are representative of so many Windham locals; especially those who recognized just how

special Windham is and chose to stay and rebuild after the hurricane. 


Cordelia’s positive outlook & her extensive knowledge of wine

make her book picks natural choices! 

We'll be sharing the favorite reads of some of our favorite neighbors on a regular basis.

Please check in often to see what Windham is reading!
