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 Days in the History of Silence by Merethe Lindstrøm. Beneath the surface of a happy marriage, a couple hides painful facts about their own respective histories, from one another as well as from their children. As memories resurface and take on new weight, what are the consequences of mistaking silence for peace?
