UC Book Club News
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman is the August UC Book Club selection for the dinner meeting scheduled Thursday, August 10, at 6:00pm. Susan Walker will lead the discussion.
Ove is a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points to people he dislikes as if they were burglars. He has staunch principles, strict routines and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell." But is Ove bitter just because he thinks he is surrounded by idiots? Ove's well-ordered solitary world gets a shake-up with the appearance of new neighbors followed by a community's unexpected reassessment of the one person they thought they had all figured out.
Upcoming UC Book Club Selections:
September: The Butterfly Mosque: A Young American Woman's Journey to Love and Islam by G. Willow Wilson; the 2017 One Community, One Book Selection
