Author Talk: Karen Engelmann—The Stockholm Octavo
Thursday, Jan. 17, 7 – 8:30 p.m.
Karen Engelmann’s dazzling debut, The Stockholm Octavo, is set during Stockholm’s opulent Golden Age and brilliantly interweaves history, romance and intrigue, in which one man’s fortune holds the key to a nation’s precarious fate. Engelmann spent nine years in Malmo, Sweden working for companies like IKEA where the idea of this book grew to life. She is the 2011 winner of the American Scandinavian Society Cultural Award Grant.
