Tuesday, March 12, 2019:  Bok Klub
1:30 – 3:00 pm.   Nordic Hall.
The Man Who Stole Himself by Gisli Palsson is our March selection . After being born into slavery in St. Croix in 1784, Hans Jonathan was taken as a slave to Denmark. Having enlisted in the navy and fighting on behalf of Denmark, he declared himself a free man. When he lost one of the most notorious slavery cases in European history, Hans ran away–never to be heard from in Denmark again. After over two hundred years, it was discovered that he fled to Iceland, where he became a merchant and farmer, married, and raised two children. Today, he has become something of an Icelandic icon, claimed for his daring life and courage.
