The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared

 

The Kilbourn Public Library Book Club is starting 2015 by reading The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. This is the Swedish author’s debut novel. This quirky and utterly unique story has charmed readers across the world.

Allan Karlsson is a reluctant centenarian much like Forrest Gump (if Gump were an explosives expert with a fondness for vodka) who decides it’s not too late to start over.

Pick up a copy of the book at the library or the bookmobile and join us to discuss this imaginative and laugh-out-loud novel. We will be meeting on Monday, January 26 at 6:30 p.m. and Wednesday, January 28 at 1:30 p.m. Hope to see you there!

If you can't join us in person, post your thoughts, comments and questions on our book club blog at kplreads.
