TUE—May 21—6 PM, free
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 Children of God. In this daring novel, marginal figures from the New Testament—soldiers, thieves, lepers and disciples—enter a shadowy space in the conflict between good and evil.
