September Nordic Book Chat: "Fog Island"

Sunday, September 15, 2019 - 12:45pm to 2:45pm

Join ASI’s book chat to discuss our picks of Nordic novels, all translated by ASI language instructor Rachel Willson-Broyles

In September, we will talk about Fog Island by Mariette Lindstein

What's it about?

"When Sofia meets Franz Oswald, the handsome, charming leader of a mysterious New Age movement, she’s dazzled and intrigued. Visiting his headquarters on Fog Island, Sofia ... agrees to stay, just for a while. But as summer gives way to winter, and the dense fog from which the island draws its name sets in, it becomes clear that Franz rules the island with an iron fist. No phones or computers are allowed. Contact with the mainland is severed. Electric fences surround the grounds. And Sofia begins to realize how very alone she is and that no one ever leaves Fog Island…" – Harper Collins
