Boston will also play host to other events across, including a screening of Icelandic short films from the Stockfish Film Festival at the Brattle Theater on March 19. Swing by WBUR’s studio on the 16th to hear a special discussion about Iceland’s rich literary tradition with Eliza Reid, Iceland’s first lady, author and the founder of the Iceland Writers Retreat. Stay tuned for more details on our art event, featuring a talk from Björg Stefánsdóttir, the director of the Icelandic Art Center!
Taste of Iceland in Chicago | April 20 - 23
Get ready, Windy City! Taste of Iceland is taking over Chicago April 13-16. Fresh off of placing third at the prestigious Bocuse d ́Or competition, Icelandic chef Viktor Örn Andrésson will arrive in Chicago to treat the city to a weekend of tasty Icelandic dishes and cocktails. If you missed Fufanu and Mammut in Boston, you can catch them again at Chop Shop & First Ward near Chicago’s Wicker Park for Reykjavik Calling, combining their Icelandic tunes with local Chicago acts.
