Join us to discuss this funny and thought-provoking story by Helen Russell about life in a foreign country just over the water from us.
At 33, Helen Russell was worn out and disillusioned with her job as a journalist in London. When her husband was offered a job with Lego she laughed, but then began to warm to the idea – especially when she discovers that Denmark scored highest in the UN’s first world happiness report.
Her resulting memoir of 12 months living in rural Jutland introduces us to the Danish way of life and asks what we can learn from these happy people.
This free event is open to all. If you don’t have time to read the book, a summary will be available.
