In June, the book group for mature readers will discuss A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. This New York Times Best Seller, set in Sweden, tells the story of a curmudgeon, forced into retirement, and perpetually at odds with, yet disconnected from the world around him. When lively new neighbors invade his tightly managed world, we learn of the tragedies that led to his curmudgeonly persona, and see his world begin to open up.
