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 take place the last Tuesday of the month in the Halldór Laxness Library at Scandinavia House.

If you’re unable to make it to a meeting or live outside of New York, join in the discussion online in our Goodreads group during the last week of the month.

Moonstone: The Boy Who Never Was by Sjón

Icelandic author Sjón specializes in mind-bending miniature historical epics and his latest novel, Moonstone: The Boy Who Never Was (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, August 2016), is no exception. Moonstone is the story of a young Icelandic man on the fringes of a society that is itself at the fringes of the world—at what seems like history’s most tumultuous moment.

Copies of Moonstone: The Boy Who Never Was will be available to purchase in the Shop at Scandinavia House after August 1, 2016.
