Read and discuss Scandinavian literature in translation as part of our Nordic Book Club. Each month we select a novel from some of the best Nordic literary voices. Discussions typically take place the last Tuesday of the month in the Halldór Laxness Library at Scandinavia House and online in our Goodreads group during the last week of the month.
This month, we’re reading A Change Of Time by Ida Jessen. Through winding diary entries, this novel pieces together the life of a schoolteacher in rural Denmark after her husband passes away in the early 20th century.
