We loved the last Fredrik Backman book so much, that we have picked another book by this author.
As always, mention that you are purchasing for the NMC book club at Copperfield Novato for a discount.
Us Against You
From Fredrik Backman, New York Times bestselling author of Beartown, comes a heart-wrenching story of the ways loyalty, friendship, and love carry a small community through its darkest days.
After everything that the citizens of Beartown have gone through, they are struck yet another blow when they hear that their beloved local junior hockey team will soon be disbanded. What makes it worse is the obvious satisfaction that all the former Beartown players, who now play for a rival team in Hed, take in that fact. As the tension between the two towns simmers, a surprising newcomer is handpicked to try to save the Beartown club.
Soon a new team starts to take shape around Amat, the fastest player you’ll ever see; Benji, the intense lone wolf; and Vidar, a born-to-be-bad troublemaker. But bringing this team together proves to be a challenge as old bonds are broken, new ones are formed, and the enmity with Hed grows more and more heated.
As the big game between Beartown and Hed approaches, the not-so-innocent pranks and incidents between the communities pile up. By the time the last game is finally played, a resident of Beartown will be dead, and the people of both towns will be forced to wonder if, after all they’ve been through, the game they love can ever return to something simple and innocent.
Us Against You is a declaration of love for all the big and small, bright and dark stories that form and colour our communities. Compelling and heartbreaking, it’s a roller-coaster ride of emotions and a showcase for “Fredrik Backman’s pitch-perfect dialogue and unparalleled understanding of human nature” (Shelf Awareness).
Sheltering in Place with little ones is hard. Let's keep our network strong! We are not quite back to normal yet, so our special membership discount has been extended through the end of May for both new and existing members.
Do you know a mama or a mama-to-be in Novato who has not yet joined NMC? You can use this link to purchase a gift membership! After purchasing, we will send you a gift certificate and contact info for our Membership Coordinator to help get her enrolled.
Would you like to extend your existing membership at a discount? Here you go! If you’re a current member and you’d like to extend your membership at the special rate, you can! Regardless of when your renewal date is (even if you just renewed!), you can take advantage of this deal, and an extra year will be applied to your account.
Of course, new members are welcome as well. If you are not yet a member of Novato Mothers Club, here's a discount to get you started. New members need to go to the "join us" link at the top of our website to enroll. You will get the $35 rate if you sign up by May 31, 2021 :)
If you have any trouble with the renewal process, please reach out to our Membership Coordinator email@example.com or Anna firstname.lastname@example.org. Sometimes the system can get sticky and needs a little admin help.
Please feel free to pass this offer along to friends who are not yet members of NMC. Anyone should be able to follow the links to purchase a one year membership.
Thank you all for making NMC the amazing network that it is!

Board Meeting Time!!
Please review the agenda draft (will be updated before the meeting). Email the co-directors at email@example.com if you would like to add to the agenda.
Although board meetings are focused on getting the 'work' done that makes everything happen, we start with a little bit of social time, and members are welcome to come along to find out everything that we have in the works!
No board meeting this month.
We are so happy to have you in our community and want you to know about an important NMC resource, Mothers' Support. This past year has been slightly different, to say the least, but we wanted to make you aware that Mothers' Support is still in full effect. As a member of NMC, it feels incredible to be a part of a community that supports one another. We do that rallying through food in a time of need. It is required that within the year of initiating membership all members provide one meal to a family or opt-out by paying a fee. Due to Covid, home-cooked meals have had to be put on hold, but we have come up with a solution to make sure all families in need still get their meals.
Although nothing beats a home-cooked meal, we plan to extend food delivery gift cards to families. We ask that each member make a contribution in one of the amounts listed below. Members requesting support will receive a gift certificate to GrubHub or DoorDash. We'll also create a personal meal train link that families can circulate if they would like. Our contributions will help the family with one less thing to do when times may not be the easiest.
Thank you so much for your support to this club and all the future moms in need. And don't forget to reach out if you have a baby on the way! If you're unable to contribute to at this time, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can fulfill your membership duty and find another way to help.
