Many of you know how we adore the Swedish novelist Fredrik Backman and the cast of characters he has created so far. Well, it all began with one loveable but grumpy old man named Ove (pronounced Oo-vah). The Swedish film adaptation has been overwhelmingly well-received so far and is the nominee for an Academy Award!
In other EXCITING news, our little independent bookstore made national news on NPR's Morning Edition today! Listen or read the story here: A Swedish Curmudgeon Wins Hearts, On The Page, And Now On Screen
And then, we were called by the New York Times to give our thoughts on Fredrik's books and his success... and they printed our name and Nancy's comment in their Arts section on Saturday! We are so proud! Read the story here.
Or better yet, come into the store and hold the printed article in your hands.
Have you seen the Ove movie yet?
Just last May, Fredrik Backman visted our store!
