StoryFest 2023: Eliza Reid – Monday May 8

May 8, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$20.00

Eliza Reid, the First Lady of Iceland, examines her adopted homeland’s attitude toward women—the deep-seated cultural sense of fairness, the influence of current and historical role models, and, crucially, the areas where Iceland still has room for improvement. Reid’s own experience as an immigrant from small-town Canada who never expected to become a first lady is expertly interwoven with interviews with dozens of sprakkar (“extraordinary women”) to form the backbone of an illuminating discussion of what it means to move through the world as a woman, and how the rules of society play more of a role in who we view as “equal” than we may understand. Secrets of the Sprakkar is a powerful and atmospheric portrait of a tiny country that could lead the way forward for us all.

Tickets are $20.00 each and can be purchased electronically here and are available at Que de Bonnes Choses (484-D Main, Hudson) 

We wish to thank Alena Kirby, Centre Décore Hudson, Hudson Family Health Centre, Janet Ellerbeck, Embers, La Plantation, Maison Rose, Penny Petz and Town of Hudson for their partnership.
