The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared
December 14 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
By Jonas Jonasson, 2012
To lighten things up a bit, we turn now to another well-written silly and wonderful novel by a Swedish author, Johan Jonasson. About to turn 100, Allan Karlsson decides to terminate his time in a nursing home not by dying but by escaping. This is not your usual Nordic Noir. Events include a suitcase full of money, unpleasant criminals and an elephant. “Fast moving and relentlessly funny.” A good way to end a tough year here on Planet Earth.
Location: Lower Level at Artworks. Facilitators: Jeanette Fleury and Barb Ross.
