Join John and Harriet* of the Faroe Islands for a free lecture on the culture and history of their home country. Located between the north Atlantic and the Norwegian Sea, the Faroe Islands lie to the north of Scotland, equidistant from Iceland, Scotland and Denmark. Only 48,000 people inhabit these remote islands, home to a strong and unique traditional culture, rooted in fishing and a starkly beautiful landscape. John and Harriet will show images and tell stories about the culture, food and crafts of this stunning and unusual place. FREE to the public. 

*Their last name cannot be written on the English keyboard, but they will teach us how to pronounce it!
