Crying in the grass - fragments of Boye and Hörberg

15 April

Karin Boye and Barbro Hörberg. Two much-loved authors wrote poems exploring life, each in her own distinct style, with longing and melancholy as central themes. Their creativity wasn’t only expressed through timeless words, but also in Karin Boye’s curiosity about life and Barbro Hörberg’s famous sense of humour.

Streamed live on April 15, at 7:00pm. (The stream will begin at 6:45pm and the concert will begin at 7:00pm.)
