Olaf Olafsson - The Sacrament — in conversation with Ambassador Bergdís Ellertsdóttir

Upcoming Event
Monday, January 13, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Written with the lyrical prose that distinguished The Journey Home, Absolution, and other novels, Olafsson’s new book is an intricately plotted psychological thriller that centers on unanswered questions surrounding a Catholic school in his native Iceland.  Sent by the Vatican to investigate charges of sexual abuse, a nun arrives the day the school’s headmaster falls to his death from the bell tower. Was this an admission of guilt, an accident, or a crime? Twenty years later, summoned by the only student who witnessed the death, the nun returns to Iceland and reckons with the unknowns of her own past.
