October 16
Swedish Reading Club: After the Fire (Svenska gummistövlar) by Henning Mankell
We will be meeting at Covenant Village of the Great Lakes, 2510 Lake Michigan Drive NW (between Oakleigh and Fairfield).
7 PM
This follow-up to Italian Shoes returns readers to the small island off the coast of Sweden, home to retired surgeon Fredrik Welin.
"This final novel from Mankell, posthumously published in a stunning English translation, questions what happens to a person who has lost everything—and who considers himself too old to rebuild. Mankell's understated yet thrilling use of language brings both the rugged scenery and Fredrik’s deep-rooted loneliness to life. It's a skillfully told, exquisitely structured story filled with sharp insights into human nature and unflinching examinations of the complex relationships to which people bind themselves in order to feel a little bit less alone." (Publishers Weekly)
The book is available at Schuler's, 2660 28th Street SE, at a 20% discount!
You can also buy the book online at Schuler's or another independent bookstore.

Lucia Celebration

Women's Group: Flitiga Lisor

Flitiga Lisor är en grupp kvinnliga, svensktalande medlemmar som träffas ungefär en gång i månaden. Gruppen startades under hösten 2003, då vi träffades regelbundet för att tillverka julsaker att sälja på Lucia. Det lyckades bra och förtjänsten gick till SAHS. När vi inte känner för att vara så flitiga, träffas vi bara för att prata och fika.

Flitiga Lisor is a group of Swedish speaking women that meets once a month or so. It began during the fall of 2003 when we got together to make Christmas crafts to sell at the Lucia celebration. The project was a success and the money earned went to SAHS. When we feel less inclined to work we get together to have coffee and speak Swedish.
