TUE—12-20-2016—6-7 PM, free

Read and discuss Scandinavian literature in translation as part of our Nordic Book Club. This season we explore contemporary literature from Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. Discussions 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.

I Refuse by Norwegian author Per Petterson is a spare, but evocative tale of two men whose accidental meeting one morning churns up a fateful moment from their boyhood 35 years before.
