The Tyngsborough Public Library’s book club meets 8 times a year on the last Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm; 4 times through September and December; and 4 times through March and June. For a full schedule of Book Club meeting times and books, visit: https://www.tynglib.org/books-more/book-club/.
From September to December, we will be reading four books, each with a differing genre and subgenre. Hopefully this will encourage conversation within the group where we can reflect on similar themes and character dynamics depicted in various settings, writing styles, and genres; embarking us on a journey to appreciate and analyze similar ideologies across these interchanging factors. It can also be a great way to step outside of your reading comfort zone!
No registration required. Copies of each title are available at the circulation desk approximately one month before each meeting. Drop in to any meeting regardless of prior attendance or completion of the book. Email [email protected] with any questions.
November 30th at 6:30pm
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman Genre: contemporary fiction
Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon, the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him the bitter neighbor from hell, but must Ove be bitter just because he doesn’t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time?
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. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents’ association to their very foundations.
