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

October: The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
