Swedish Books in English

We read books by Swedish authors translated to English.  We are currently a group of six who enjoy convivial meetings in each others houses at 2pm every two months or so to discuss the book we have just read.

If you are interested in joining us, or would like further information, please contact Carina Dahlström-Mair at cdmair@exseed.ed.ac.uk.
