Eliza Reid with Juan Carlos Reyes

Reykjavik to Seattle: on Icelandic Literature

Celebrate Iceland's rich storytelling tradition with a talk by Iceland's First Lady Eliza Reid at Seattle Public Central Library. In addition to being first lady, Reid is also a Reykjavik-based writer and editor who co-founded the Iceland Writers Retreat. Iceland is one of the most popular destinations for creative minds, and Reid will focus her talk on what makes Iceland so unique and inspirational - both as a home and as a travel destination - for lovers of the written word. After her introduction to Iceland's literary traditions, Juan Reyes, Seattle writer, Seattle University professor, and board member of Seattle UNESCO City of Literature will lead a Q&A discussion. We should be on hand with an assortment of books (translated) by Icelandic writers.

Co-presented by the CONSULATE OF ICELAND, SEATTLE UNESCO CITY OF LITERATURE, SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY, ELLIOTT BAY BOOK COMPANY. Free admission.
