Reading w/the Rev. Summer Book Club

Join MVUC members and friends in a summer book discussion on zoom with Rev. Ian! We’ll be reading and discussing Fredrik Backman’s A Man Called Ove. Discussions are scheduled for Thursday evenings in August – August 8, 15, 22, 29 at 7:00pm Eastern on zoom. More details will be made available later this summer.

“Readers seeking feel-good tales with a message will rave about the rantings of this solitary old man with a singular outlook. If there was an award for ‘Most Charming Book of the Year,’ this first novel by a Swedish blogger-turned-overnight-sensation would win hands down.” (Booklist, Starred Review)

“A funny crowd-pleaser that serves up laughs to accompany a thoughtful reflection on loss and love… The author writes with winning charm.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

“This charming debut novel by Backman should find a ready audience with English-language readers… hysterically funny… wry descriptions, excellent pacing… In the contest of Most Winning Combination, it would be hard to beat grumpy Ove and his hidden,generous heart.” (Kirkus Reviews)

The book can be found at your favorite bookseller and we’ll have copies available for purchase in the MVUC Book Nook later this summer. It’s also available to check out via Libby at the Fairfax County Public Library.
