Field Notes Book Group

Saturday, January 25, 2020 - 11:00am to 12:30pm

Join the Field Notes Book Group on Saturday, January 25, from 11 to 12:30 at the Teen Zone in the Field Library for coffee, snacks and a lively discussion of this month's book, Britt-Marie Was Here, by Fredrik Backman.  Copies of the book will be available at the Circulation Desk.


Britt-Marie is a middle aged woman who has left her husband when she discovered he'd been cheating on her. A woman with standards, who will tell you she's not passive-aggressive no matter what other people think, finds herself getting a job in the middle of nowhere, in Borg, Sweden, taking care of a soon-to-be eliminated town recreation center, and, despite herself, becoming the coach of the kids' soccer team and being gradually integrated into the community of Borg, which, like Britt-Marie, is more than it appears on the surface.

Join us for coffee, snacks and vigorous discussion.
