Icelandic author Hallgrímur Helgason will read from and discuss his book, Woman at 1,000 Degrees. A historical novel published in 2011, Woman at 1, 000 Degrees is based on the real life of Brynhildur Georgía Björnsson, an Icelandic woman whom Helgason accidentally met over the telephone in 2006, when he was aiding his ex-wife during an election campaign, getting people to vote for the Social Democratic Party.
