Come and chat about May's book and all things Sweden- or reading-related at our second Book Club event in Stockholm.

The Local Sweden recently launched a Book Club to help our readers learn about Sweden through reading. After our first event last month, where we met in Stockholm to listen to a talk on legendary Swedish author Astrid Lindgren's life, we're pleased to announce the second event.

We'll be at The English Bookshop in Södermalm, Stockholm after work from 6pm-8pm on Wednesday, May 22nd.
