Swedish author Fredrik Backman joins us at Scandinavia House for an informal discussion of his work, including his New York Times best-selling novel A Man Called Ove.
A Man Called Ove is Back’s delightfully quirky debut novel in which a grumpy, yet lovable man finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family movies in next door. A feel-good story, the novel is a thoughtful exploration of the profound impact one life has on countless others.
Copies of several of Backman’s books will be available for purchase and signing following the talk.
