The Icelanders Cometh

What is the project?

This inaugural Jolabokaflod Patch project – The Icelanders Cometh – showcases Icelandic authors in the UK. To celebrate World Book Night and UNESCO’s World Book and Copyright Day on 23 April 2016, the money raised will pay for award-winning Icelandic books in English to be given to UK libraries.

What do we need?

‘The Icelanders Cometh’ aims to raise at least GBP 2304.16 to mark World Book Night and ‘World Book and Copyright Day on 23 April 2016 to pay for books by Icelanders to be gifted to UK libraries. This project welcomes financial contributions in exchange for rewards and is keen to attract volunteers to get involved and to spread the news via word of mouth.
