Fredrik Backman

Monday, October 3, 7:30 p.m. CDT

Location: Horchow Auditorium

Fredrik Backman’s long-awaited conclusion to the beloved New York Times bestselling and “engrossing” (People) Beartown series—which inspired an HBO series of the same name—follows the small hockey town’s residents as they grapple with change, pain, hope, and redemption.

When destruction caused by a ferocious late-summer storm reignites the old rivalry between Beartown and the neighboring town of Hed, simmering tensions between the two communities escalate, forcing residents to grapple with questions of friendship, loyalty, loss, and identity. The Winners beautifully captures all the complexities of daily life while asking us to reconsider what it means to win, what it means to lose, and what it means to forgive.

Backman is the New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove, Britt-Marie Was HereUs Against YouAnxious People, and several others. His books have been published in more than 40 countries.
