TUE—August 28—6-7 PM
#NordicBookClub

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 Mirror, Shoulder, Signal by Dorthe Norsa. A Swedish crime fiction translator in her mid-40s, Sonja is looking to take her life in a new direction by finally learning to drive. But under the overbearing gaze of her driving instructor, she finds herself unable to shift gears. Nors brings her distinctive blend of style and humor to this journey of a woman in search for herself, with no one to ask for directions.
