Die-alogues is a series of discussion groups intended to start meaningful conversations about death, dying, loss and grief in our community. In this “A Good Death” Edition, we will facilitate conversation and encourage personal reflection around what makes a ‘good death’. Participants will be engaged in a series of activities and group discussions.
Book Discussion- A Man Called Ove
By Fredrik Backman
Thursday, April 1st, 2021, 2pm- 3:30pm
A grumpy yet loveable man finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door. 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 Ove’s 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.
Join McNally House in partnership with The Grimsby Public Library, for a discussion of A Man Called Ove. Copies of book are available at the library.
