Nordic Literary Salon online: The Moomins

The last Nordic Literary Salon online in 2023 will take us to the Nordic classics. We will talk to Swedish translator and editor Dagmar Hartlová about the new editions of the mummy books by Finnish-Swedish author Tove Jansson, which are currently being published in a new guise and revised translation by Libor Štukavec at Argo. Finn Family Moomintroll and Moominland Midwinter have been published so far in 2023, and Comet in Moominland is in print.

You can watch the live stream on Thursday 14 December 2023 at 8 pm on the Scandinavian House Facebook page. A recording will be made available on our YouTube channel at a later date.

In Czech.

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.
