This September, join us for a virtual book talk on The Viking Heart: How Scandinavians Conquered the World with Arthur Herman, out from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

For millennia Norwegians, Danes, Finns, and Swedes lived a remote and rugged existence among the fjords and peaks of the land of the midnight sun. But when they finally left their homeland in search of opportunity, these wanderers — including the most famous, the Vikings — would reshape Europe and beyond.

In The Viking Heart, New York Times historian and Pulitzer Prize finalist Arthur Herman melds a compelling historical narrative with cutting-edge archaeological discoveries and DNA research to trace the epic story of this remarkable and truly diverse people. He shows how the Scandinavian experience has universal meaning, and how we can still be inspired by their indomitable spirit and the strength of their community bonds, much needed in our deeply polarized society today.

In this book talk, Herman will discuss the research and writing of this novel, followed by an audience Q&A.

This event will take place as a Zoom webinar; please ask questions in the chat or send them in advance to info@amscan.org. Registration is required; please sign up at the link.
