March's Book Discussion

In March, we will be discussing 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.

In January, we featured Simon and the Oaks by Marianne Fredriksson. 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.
