Biography of Vigdís Finnbogadóttir in Progress

Icelandic book publishing company Forlagid is planning to publish the biography of former President of Iceland Vigdís Finnbogadóttir in 2009, the first democratically elected female president in the world.

“The person Vigdís, her life and views will play the central role of course, but at the same time we are writing about a very important part of Iceland’s history,” author Páll Valsson, who is working on the book, told Morgunbladid.

“This has been my dream for a very long time and I spoke with Vigdís about this idea many years ago,” said Jóhann Páll Valdimarsson at Forlagid.
