Dr. Maren Johnson, Luther College's Associate Professor of Nordic Studies and Torgerson Center for Nordic Studies Director, facilitates a monthly bokprat, discussing Scandinavian authors and Scandinavian life. Following February's discussion of Ibsen's A Doll's House, join us in March as we explore Wendy Swallow's Searching for Nora: After the Doll's House. This inventive work of historical fiction asks the question, "What happened to Nora Helmer?" Don't hesitate to contact Andrew Ellingsen, Folk Art Coordinator, with any questions you may have (email@example.com).
Supplies: A computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.
Special Instructions: Registrants should secure their own copy of the book (available for purchase through Vesterheim's Museum Store) and have read it prior to the discussion. When registering for the class, please make sure to use the email address you'd like the Zoom meeting invitations sent to. You will receive a link to the Zoom sessions by email sometime during the week prior to the discussion.
Enrollment Deadline: March 9, 2022
