Claire  (claire6452) | 711 comments In case you were not aware, Fredrik Backman's newest book,
Anxious People by Fredrik Backman
was just released on Tuesday, and he is currently doing a virtual book tour. Most of the dates have already passed, but there are a few still happening between now and September 16th. A couple of them have a small registration fee, the others are (I think) free to register. You may still be able to purchase an autographed copy of the book, depending on supply.

I joined his event today, and it was really interesting to hear him talk about his writing, and see his personality in real life. I highly recommend signing up for one of the remaining dates if you can.

Here's the link to the info you need:

Karin | 776 comments I have read every single novel and novella of his that has been translated into English. This one was not one of my favourites, although by the end I liked it at 3 stars.

Dorothy  (vilette) | 127 comments I was not expecting to like it having read a number of reviews like yours but I was pleasantly surprised.

I can believe that as some of my reading friends liked it a great deal as well.
