This literary event celebrates Iceland’s rich storytelling culture with a discussion lead by Iceland’s First Lady, Eliza Reid. In addition to being first lady, Reid is also a Reykjavik-based writer and editor who co-founded the Iceland Writers Retreat, an annual gathering for published and aspiring writers. Iceland is one of the most popular destinations for creative minds, so Reid will focus her talk on what makes Iceland so inspirational for lovers of the written word. Attendees can learn about and discuss novels from highly-acclaimed Icelandic authors.
This event is free and open to the public.
