ABOUT THE BOOK CLUB
If you like everything bagels, you'll probably like The Everything Book Club. We read the best of fiction and non-fiction, literary novels, mysteries, historical fiction, memoirs and more.
We generally meet on the third week of the month at two convenient times and venues: Evening Zoom on Thursday at 7 p.m. and Daytime in Person at 1 p.m. in the Tower Room on the 2nd floor in the colder months. Registration is required.
ABOUT THE BOOK
A book of hilarious short stories featuring an irascible 88-year-old Swedish woman with no family, no friends, and…no qualms about a little murder. Translated from Swedish.

"Eighty-eight-year-old Maud is not your typical grandmother type. She does not bake cookies, embrace people warmly, or welcome new residents to her apartment building with lovely meals. Maud kills people.
Granted, Maud does not kill random strangers. She does not [generally] go after people who make society a worse place. She does not murder people for money. She simply likes her life how it is, and will get rid of anyone who threatens it."--New York Journal of Books
"This funny, irreverent story collection by Helene Tursten, author of the Irene Huss investigations, features two-never-before translated stories that will keep you laughing all the way to the retirement home."--BookBrowse
