Sigrid Undset, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature and midlife convert to Catholicism, gives us a gripping four-volume tale of guilt and redemption, love and suffering, violence and divine Providence, centering on the life, times, and family of Olav Audunsson in medieval Norway. The group will discuss one volume at each session, using the sparkling new translation by Tiina Nunnally and published by the University of Minnesota Press:


June 26: I. Vows

July 10: II. Providence

July 24: III. Crossroads

August 7: IV. Winter


All are welcome, but registration is required. Light dinner served.


Participants can obtain books from local libraries and bookstores, or on Amazon (including Kindle). Please purchase the new translation by Tiina Nunnally, not the Chater translation from 1927-30.
