Event description

Description

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 "The Red Address Book" by Sofia Lundberg, which has now been published in 32 countries. At the age of 96, Doris lives alone in her Stockholm apartment, where her only truly meaningful encounters are weekly Skype calls with her American grand-niece, Jenny. When she runs across an old address book where she once carefully documented everyone she has known and loved throughout the years, she decides to write down the stories of her colorful past, in a hope to provide life answers to the troubled Jenny.
