TUE—July 31—6-7 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 Eventide by Therese Bohman. Art history professor Karolina Andersson feels adrift living alone and childless following the end of a long relationship. When a student she is advising claims to have made a discovery that would change the historiography of Swedish visual arts, she ﬁnds herself embroiled in an unexpectedly complicated game, in this perceptive novel about love, art, and solitude.
