Book Talk – Launch thing with author Rowdy Geirsson and friends

Join the Scandinavian Cultural Center on June 11th for the launch-thing of Rowdy Geirsson’s new book, The Scandinavian Aggressors. The event will feature a reading by Geirsson from the book, book signings by him along with Matt Smith and Corwin Ericson, hand-made natural Norse products for sale by Eir’s Garden, and a beer tasting (21+) by local craft brewery, Navigation Brewing Company.

Rowdy Geirsson is the editor of Norse Mythology for Bostonians and a regular contributor to Metal Sucks and McSweeney’s. His writing has also appeared in the American-Scandinavian Foundation’s Scandinavian Review and the Sons of Norway’s Viking Magazine. His new book, The Scandinavian Aggressors, is an offbeat odyssey into the freezing heart of the modern Northlands that features delightful and illuminating episodes about enslaved leprechauns, beheaded mermaids, elite warrior sisterhoods, deranged Swedish fishermen, craft-beer-brewing zombies, and perverted trolls.

Matt Smith is the creator of Barbarian Lord and the illustrator of Hellboy: The Bones of Giants.

Corwin Ericson is the author of Swell and Checked Out OK.

Eir’s Garden is a local business that makes and sells Norse-inspired soaps, lotions, creams, and other natural products.
