TUE—June 9—6 PM, free

**Nordic Book Club will take place as an online meeting**

Read and discuss Scandinavian literature in translation as part of our Nordic Book Club, now online! Each month we select a novel from some of the best Nordic literary voices. Discussions have typically taken place the last Tuesday of the month at Scandinavia House but will now be taking place bi-weekly as an online meeting. Register here to sign up for the meeting; registrants will receive a web link to where the meeting will take place.

Book club participants will all appear online at the start of the meeting when they log in so that they are able to take part in the conversation. For participants who would prefer not to be visible onscreen, see an easy tutorial online here on how to set a profile image that will appear onscreen instead.

On June 9, we’re reading Professor Andersen’s Night by Dag Solstad, originally scheduled to take place this past March. In this existential murder mystery, 55-year-old professor Pål Andersen is alone one Christmas Eve in his living room, drinking cognac, when he witnesses a man strangling a woman in an apartment across the street. Rather than reporting the crime, he becomes paralyzed by his indecision, setting off an unsettling reexamination of his own derailed life.
