SONG OF THE VIKINGS: READING & SIGNING WITH NANCY MARIE BROWN


Song of the Vikings: Snorri and the Making of Norse Myths In Song of the Vikings, award-winning author Nancy Marie Brown brings us the life of Snorri Sturluson, the thirteenth-century Icelandic chieftain who created Norse mythology. “For readers who’ve long sensed that older winds blow through the works of their beloved Tolkien, Song of the Vikings is a fitting refresher on Norse mythology. Without stripping these dark tales of their magic, Nancy Marie Brown shows how mere humans shape myths that resonate for centuries – and how one brilliant scoundrel became, for all time, the ‘Homer of the North.’”--Jeff Sypeck, author of Becoming Charlemagne
