Book club
Discussion
Group
Come join the group on Monday, April 20th at 2 pm,
as we discuss Fredrik Backmans thoughful novel,

A Man Called Ove

In this bestselling and delightfully quirky debut


novel from Sweden, a grumpy yet loveable man
finds his solitary world turned on its head when a
boisterous young family moves in next door.
Meet Ove. Hes a curmudgeonthe kind of man
who points at people he dislikes as if they were
burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He
has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short
fuse. People call him the bitter neighbor from
hell. But must Ove be bitter just because he
doesnt walk around with a smile plastered to his
face all the time?
Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one
November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters
move in next door and accidentally flatten Oves mailbox, it is the lead-in to a
comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and
the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky
old man and a local residents association to their very foundations.
Register in the office and receive a library copy of
this New York Times Bestseller for advance
reading.
See what everybody has been reading
and join in the discussion!

Moriah Senior Makes a Difference


When Moriah senior Walter Kehr attended a performance by the New York Youth Symphony,
he was horrified to hear that 21-year-old Estonian-American composer, Jonas Tarm, had
included quotes from the Nazi anthem "Horst Wessel Lied in his composition. Walter
returned home and immediately drafted a letter to the Symphony
telling them what exactly their young performers were playing.
For those who think that seniors cant make a difference, it might be
interesting to know that the NYYS asked the composer to explain his
choice and when he refused, they immediately cancelled the concert
and pulled the piece from their repertoire.
