Overview

Talking Ideas: A Journey to Viking Iceland with Kári Gíslason

Embark on a journey to Iceland and into the fierce lives of the Vikings, when Kári Gíslason (The Promise of Iceland and co-author of Saga Land with Richard Fidler) shares one of the great saga stories of the north.

This is a tale of exile, and of a family that a thousand years ago was forced to settle in the remote Westfjords of Iceland. They built a farm, fell in love and married. And discovered that life in their new home would not be a peaceful one.

In 2018, Kári travelled back to his birthplace and into the footsteps of the Viking settlers. He went in search of people whose stories are still loved. The sagas are the national treasures of Iceland, and monuments of world literature. But they are not just stories of exile. At their heart, the sagas are also tales of belonging and return.

Join Kári for an evening of dazzling storytelling, sounds and images as he takes us to the extraordinary landscapes and sagas of the Vikings.

 

The Library Shop will have a selection of Kari’s books available for sale at the event, and you are invited to meet him post-event to have your book signed. 

MAKE A NIGHT OF IT

Come along early and enjoy live music, hot snacks, cold beer and wine at the Library Café Bar.
