A writer for every taste
Whether you’re into reading crime fiction, award-winning literary fiction or medieval myths and histories, Jolabokaflod.org will tickle your tastebuds.
Experience the best that Nordic noir can offer by reading novels by Arnaldur Indriðason, Yrsa Sigurðardóttir and Ragnar Jónasson. Enter the worlds created by comic genius Halldór Laxness, the 1955 Nobel Laureate. Or, immerse yourself in heroic tales of life in Iceland from 1000 years ago, featuring Gods, monsters, heroes and villains.
Better still, make sure you help all readers in the UK enjoy these authors’ work by contributing money to The Icelanders Cometh crowdfunding campaign for libraries, as well as volunteering your help and sharing the project by word-of-mouth and digital media.
Let’s raise £2304.16 by World Book Night (23 April 2016), to introduce these great writers to readers new to their work for their delight and appreciation.
