Vesterheim Bokprat: Heroes Of The Primstav By Lucy O'Laghlin Tokheim

Wednesday, October 26 | 7:00-8:15 pm CT

Location: Online on Zoom

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. Join us as we discuss the graphic novel Heroes of the Primstav: The Princess and the Boatboy by Lucy O’Laughlin Tokheim. This retelling of the legend of St. Sunniva, the first patron saint of Norway, weaves together illustrations inspired by everything from illuminated manuscripts to the Norwegian wooden calendar stick known as the primstav. We are excited that Dr. Johnson will be joined by author and illustrator Lucy Tokheim for this discussion!

This program is free of charge. Registration is required and available here.
