Author Talk, Looking for the Hidden Folk: How Iceland’s Elves can Save the Earth by Nancy Marie Brown
This wonderful, compelling, quirky book looks at Iceland’s elves (50 % of Icelanders believe in them) and how we interact with nature. It was a New York Times Editor’s Choice.
It is “…a sweeping journey across time and space – through myth and theory, language, and literature – into the world of wonder and enchantment.” Gisli Palsson, University of Iceland.
