On April 2nd, Books and Bagels will be discussing:
The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared
by Jonas Jonasson

Confined to a nursing home and about to turn one hundred, Allan Karlsson, who has a larger-than-life back story as an explosives expert, climbs out of the window in his slippers and embarks on an unforgettable adventure involving thugs, a murderous elephant, and a very friendly hot dog stand operator.

Our discussion will concentrate on the novel, but we will also compare and contrast how the novel is presented in film format.  DVD will be available for check-out.
