Nordic Literary Salon online: I Follow You

In October, the Nordic Literary Salon takes a look at Sweden and its history. Our guest speaker will be Ela Doležalová, a budding literary translator from Swedish, who has translated the book Půjdu s tebou (I Follow You) by Lina Nordquist into Czech. The historical novel was published in 2023 by Host.

You can watch the live stream on Wednesday 18 October 2023 at 20.00 on the Scandinavian House Facebook page. The recording will be made available later on our YouTube channel.

Lina Nordquist (b. 1977) is a new fiction writer. Her debut novel, „Dit du går, följer jag,“ (2021), translated into Estonian by Tiina Mullamaa (“Järgnen sulle”, Eesti Raamat, 2022), tells a story of a family in the same house from the end of the 19th century to the 1970s.

The Nordic Literary Salon Online is partnered by Translators of the North – an association of translators of fiction from Nordic languages into English.

The event is part of the Scandinavian House’s year-long project Nordic Literature in the Heart of Europe 2023, which is supported by the City of Prague and the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.
