The Tuesday Book Club Selection for April

April 13, 1 – 2 pm

“Beartown” by Fredrik Backman is the novel to be discussed at the April 13th meeting of the Library Tuesday Book Discussion Group. The book’s setting is a small dying town surrounded by forest. But Beartown’s junior hockey team is on the way to a championship providing a glimmer of hope for everyone. Then a shocking event occurs shaking the community to its core. The Kirkus review wrote of Backman’s story that it is “part coming of age novel, part study of moral failure, and finally a chronicle of groupthink in which an unlikely hero steps forward to save more than one person from self destruction.”
