Nordic Book Club Things That Fall From the Sky by Selja Ahava


TUE—January 28—6 PM, free

“Sometimes something happens — just that once — but for the rest of your life you have to wonder why. Sometimes nothing happens, and for the rest of your life you wonder why it didn’t.” In this narrative, Selja Ahava weaves together three lives that are changed by a series of random events: a young girl who loses her mother when a block of ice falls from the sky; a woman who wins the jackpot twice; and a man who is struck by lightning four times.
