Barbara Sjoholm Lecture

Port Townsend author Barbara Sjoholm will share with SCC members her new book, an English translation of By the Fire: Sami Folktales and Legends, collected by the Danish ethnographer and artist Emilie Demant Hatt (1873-1958) in the early twentieth century. By the Fire, newly released by the University of Minnesota Press, includes Demant Hatt’s original linocut illustrations and an afterword by Sjoholm about the Sámi storytellers, many of them women, and the background of the folktales, most collected in Swedish Sápmi. Sjoholm will discuss the stories and present slides of the artwork and photographs of the storytellers. She will be joined by several members of the Pacific Sámi Searvi, who will read aloud some of the folktales.
