Join us for a discussion of the book A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman. Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes. 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.
