02dec4:00 pmWriting the Pandemic: Exploring Fear & Uncertainty in Fiction & Non-FictionWith Johan Anderberg and Jessica Schiefauer, chaired by Alice E. Olsson

Event Details

The past 18+ months have seen a surge in interest in pandemic literature, across both fiction and non-fiction. But what can these works tell us about the times we live in, and what can they tell us about ourselves? With their latest books The Herd and The Carriers, critically acclaimed Swedish writers Johan Anderberg and Jessica Schiefauer each explore the theme of pandemics – from the perspective of non-fiction and fiction. On 2 December they will join Swedish Book Review to discuss their works, responses to fear and uncertainty, and the different roles that fiction and non-fiction can play in approaching crises that are still unfolding.

This free, online event will be held in English via Zoom, and will be chaired by ‘New Books’ editor Alice E. Olsson. Register for the event here. All registered attendees will be sent a Zoom link prior to the event.
