Join in on the conversation when Salem Public Library’s Book Discussion Group meets on Tuesday, November 22, 2016 from 7-8pm in the library’s Quaker Room to discuss the book A Man Called Ove. Registration is not required to attend, books may be borrowed from the Adult Services Department and newcomers are always welcome.

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman opens by characterizing Ove as a grumpy man with staunch principles, strict routines, and a short temper. Behind his cranky exterior there is a story and sadness, it’s revealed that in his youth Ove grew up in bleak circumstances as an honorable, hardworking boy who on occasion found himself under appreciated and forsaken time and again. The circumstances from his childhood illuminate how he comes by his grumpy nature. As an adult, when a young, boisterous family moves next door to him the comical story begins of a loveable curmudgeon who’s life changes from pessimistic to optimistic. A Man Called Ove is a feel-good story that illustrates just what a profound impact one life has on countless others.
