A Man Calle Ove by Fredrick Backman

Join CJE SeniorLife for our March Book Club discussion! Renee Hochberg will lead a conversation about The Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman

At first sight, Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. But isn't it rare to find such unswerving conviction about what the world should be, and a lifelong dedication to making it just so? A funny, moving, uplifting tale of love and community that will leave you with a spring in your step.

This book can be bought on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. You can also purchase the book directly through your favorite independent bookstore (check for curbside pickup options) or purchase online at Bookshop.org, an online bookshop that financially supports independent bookshops locally and nationwide. It can also be borrowed as a Chicago Public Library Ebook here or as an Audiobook here. For those outside of the Chicago Public Library system, you can search for this Ebook at your local public library here or as an Audiobook here.
