Nancy Marie Brown Reading & Booksigning

13 Nov 2012

Tuesday, November 13 at 7PM at Malaprop's Bookstore & Café, join us as Nancy Marie Brown reads from her book Song of the Vikings: Snorri and the Making of Norse Myths.
In Song of the Vikings, award-winning author Nancy Marie Brown brings us the life of Snorri Sturluson, the thirteenth-century Icelandic chieftain who created Norse mythology. "For readers who've long sensed that older winds blow through the works of their beloved Tolkien, Song of the Vikings is a fitting refresher on Norse mythology. Without stripping these dark tales of their magic, Nancy Marie Brown shows how mere humans shape myths that resonate for centuries -- and how one brilliant scoundrel became, for all time, the 'Homer of the North."--Jeff Sypeck, author of Becoming Charlemagne.
