As part of our Online Author Series, join us for a chat with bestselling author Fredrik Backman to discuss his outstanding body of work, including his breathtaking new novel, "The Winners," the third installment of the Beartown series. 

In the beautifully written "Beartown" — which inspired the HBO series of the same name — a small town obsessed with the local junior hockey team is rocked by a shocking act of violence. As accusations and rumors fly, the town must grapple with its identity as never before.

The series continues and tensions rise when it’s rumored that the Beartown hockey team will be disbanded in "Us Against You." The entire future of the team and the town hinges on an upcoming game that could change everything forever.

Finally, the series comes to an evocative conclusion with "The Winners," which returns readers to the close-knit, resilient community for a story about first loves, second chances and last goodbyes. In the two years since the events of "Beartown," the residents must face difficult questions and determine just what they are willing to sacrifice for their home.

About the Author: Fredrik Backman is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of "A Man Called Ove," "My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry," "Britt-Marie Was Here," "Beartown," "Us Against You" and "Anxious People," as well as two novellas and one work of nonfiction. His books are published in more than 40 countries. He lives in Stockholm, Sweden, with his wife and two children.
