New Children’s Book Celebrated at National Museum

The publishing of the children’s poetry book Gaelur, faelur og thvaelur (“Caresses, repellents and nonsense”) by Thórarinn Eldjárn will be celebrated at the National Museum of Iceland today, and both children and adults are welcome.

During the celebration, an exhibition of oil paintings by Sigrún Eldjárn, the author’s sister, which were used as illustrations for the book, will be opened, and singer Bára Grímsdóttir will sing a few songs in a traditional style and read poems from the book.

After the program is finished, Eldjárn will sign copies of his book, which comes with a CD, at the museum’s store.

In unrelated news, the National Museum will be hosting lectures by historians and other specialists in relation to exhibitions at the museum every other Tuesday until spring 2008.

Next Tuesday historian Sverrir Jakobsson will guide visitors through the exhibition “A Nation is Born – Culture and Society for 1200 Years,” and discuss the term “nation.”
