Tuesday, May 14, 2019: Bok Klub
1:30 – 3:00 pm. Nordic Hall.
Unto a Good Land by Vilhelm Moberg is our May selection. Considered one of Sweden’s greatest 20th-century writers, Moberg created Karl Oskar and Kristina Nilsson to portray the joys and tragedies of daily life for early Swedish pioneers in America. His consistently faithful depiction of these humble people’s lives is a major strength of the Emigrant Novels. This book opens in the summer of 1850 as the emigrants disembark in New York City. Their journey to a new home in Minnesota Territory takes them by riverboat, steam wagon, Great Lakes steamship, and oxcart to Chicago County.
