Syttende mai Norwegian Independence Day 17 mai norge, Yes it is Viking Fest this weekend in Poulsbo. A fun run/walk, A fabulous small town parade down Front Street. rides, Norwegian lunch served at the Sons of Norway. Always a fun time.
 On that note a few Scandinavian books to get you in the Norwegian mood. My current favorite, which I just finished and throughly enjoyed is

The Gospel of Loki by Joanne Harris.( Yes the author of Chocolate). I was also very lucky to have met Joanne when she recently visited Seattle.


For the younger Scandinavian reader, try
