We Come Back Together: Auður Jónsdóttir
September 24 at 4pm
Stage in the Park, September 24 at 4pm ET.
“We come back together, only to fall apart.”
TIFA is proud to present our new collection of writing penned by some of the world’s most distinctive voices. We invited 11 authors to respond to a phrase that encapsulates elements of life in 2022. Join us daily to hear authors read their newly commissioned work as part of our free, outdoor programming.
This event features a newly commissioned piece by acclaimed Icelandic author Auður Jónsdóttir, author of the wildly popular novel Quake, and winner of the Icelandic Literary Prize for The People in the Basement and the Icelandic Women’s Literature Prize for Secretaries to the Spirits.
The Jónsdóttir reading will be followed by a PEN Canada Writers in Prison Reading; you’ll hear Festival authors perform free readings of short prose and verse written by imprisoned writers from around the world including journalists, literary critics, filmmakers and a Nobel peace laureate. Curated in partnership with PEN Canada, an organization that defends freedom of expression and promotes global community through literature.
This is a free outdoor event. Find the venue on the #FestofAuthors22 map here.
This event is presented in partnership with Taste of Iceland.
Auður Jónsdóttir appears as part of Nordic Bridges 2022. Presented with support from Icelandic Literature Centre and Icelandair.
