Tuesday, March 13, 7:30pm in the library, translator Tiina Nunnally will meet with us to discuss Sigrid Undset's Kristin Lavansdatter trilogy.
Subsequent discussions will be held in the Community Center on Wednesday evenings: March 28, April 11, and April 25. Do not miss this. Medieval lies, attempted rape, plague, suicide, adultery, as well as undying, unfortunate, unrequited love. It's good.
Undset won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1928, largely for this group of novels. Tiina Nunnally won the PEN Translation Prize for her brilliant translation of this work.
Both the library and the computer rooms will be closed Sunday and Monday, February 18th and 19th. Presidents Day.
We started our new MOOC today, Extinctions: Past and Present from the University of Capetown. The instructor is paleobiologist Anusuya Chinsamy-Turan and the platform is FutureLearn (the same one used for Richard III).
There is still plenty of time to catch up.
