Hallgrimur-Hlegason   Hallgrímur Helgason – artist & writer

Our first guest to have translated Othello into Icelandic (Catch my soul!), he began as a painter before taking up writing – plays, poetry, journalism. His new novel, Woman at 1,000 Degrees, will be published in the US in January. Presented in conjunction with Other Hats: Icelandic Printmaking. In the shadow of the High Line (if it isn’t cloudy). With music from Mamie Minch.
