Book Discussion - Simon and the Oaks

Sunday, January 7, 2018 - 12:45pm to 2:45pm

Winter Book Discussions:

Join ASI’s book discussion group to discuss our picks of Nordic novels.

In January, Simon and the Oaks by Marianne Fredriksson is featured. It's the 1940s and Simon is growing up in Sweden with a seemingly ordinary life. His relationships are not always what they seem, however, and he has to come to terms with who he really is and wants to be.

On Sunday, March 4, discussion will focus on Beartown by Fredrik Backman. Can a small remote Swedish town survive economic downfall? What is the price of making this dream come true? Many believe this is Backman's best book yet.
