TUE—May 29—6-7 PM
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 The Endless Summer by Madame Nielsen, which was featured in a book talk at Scandinavia House in March. This novel focuses on the love story of a Danish woman and a much younger Portuguese artist, in a way that confronts ideas of time, sexuality, and tragedy. When the season of their love affair draws to a close, how will their decisions have affected the lives of those around them?
