The First Tuesday Book Club will be reading "My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry" on Tue 2/6 at 6:30.
Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy—as in standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-strangers crazy. She is also Elsa’s best and only friend. When Elsa’s grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa’s greatest adventure begins.
“My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” is told with the same comic accuracy and beating heart as Fredrik Backman’s bestselling debut novel, A Man Called Ove. It is a story about life, death, and one of the most important human rights: the right to be different.
