First Readers Book Club will meet Tuesday, July 11, 10:00 AM. We will discuss A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. New readers are welcome anytime – invite a friend. We plan to continue through the summer. Mark your calendars for August 8 and September 12 and join us for a lively discussion.
The story is about an old man, "bitter neighbor". Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove’s mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents’ association to their very foundations.
