Fabulous Iceland: From Sagas to Novels-Portraits of Contemporary Icelandic Authors
Presented by Taste of Iceland
March 8 - March 31, 2013
Discover Icelandic history through the literary art exhibit, “Fabulous Iceland: From Sagas to Novels – Portraits of Contemporary Icelandic Artists.” Through a series of interviews, journalist Pétur Blöndal asked 23 contemporary Icelandic authors to describe their relationships with Icelandic literary traditions and the influence these traditions have on their work. The result is an Icelandic literary history, distilled into individual short stories and coupled with portraits taken by Kristinn Ingvarsson.
The exhibit will then be hosted in the Lobby of the Revere Hotel Boston Common Friday, March 8 through Sunday, March 31, 2013 and open daily to the public. Attendees will experience Boston’s first look at the compelling literary history of Iceland.
