The Iceland Writers Retreat (IWR) will have a booth at the annual Association of Writers and Writing Programs Conference and Bookfair in Washington DC, February 8-11. The event attracts more than 12,000 attendees for readings, panels, lectures and access to a book fair featuring publishers, programs and events from around the world. Stop by the IWR booth and say hello to Iceland’s first lady, Eliza Reid. She and the rest of the IWR team would love to discuss Icelandic literature with you!
If you’re interested in diving deeper into the world of Icelandic literature, there are still a few spots remaining for the 2017 Iceland Writers Retreat which will take place April 5-9 in Reykjavik. Faculty includes bestselling author Sara Gruen; Bret Anthony Johnston, Head of the department of Creative Writing at Harvard University; and Giller Prize winner Madeleine Thien.
