Birgit’s Garden (Birgitin puutarha in Finnish, Birgits trädgård in Swedish), is being released in Finland. To celebrate this, we´re going to have launch events in Helsinki and in TornioHaparanda.
In Helsinki the event will be held at Nordic Culture Point in Kaisaniemi and includes also an exhibition. The book release and the exhibition opening takes place on Monday 19th October 6 pm. – 8 pm. The exhibition is on display 19th –30th October.
At the book launch Eija will present the book, and she and Mariann Hansen will read passages from the book in Faroese, Finnish and Swedish with some photos from the book as back drop. There will also be interesting talks by guests Marianne Möller and Fredrik Forsberg.
In TornioHaparande the event will be held at Aine Art Museum on Friday 23rd October. Mariann Hansen joins Eija also there to read passages from the book. The museum director Katriina Pietilä-Juntura will say a few words about the book and talk about Eija's work.
The book will of course be on display as well as sold for a special price at both at the events.
The Faroe Islands are also present at both of the events in the form of food, drink and music.
Your are most welcome and hope to see you there!
