Translator Lola Rogers will be present as a special guest for a discussion of Finnish author Juhani Karila’s English-language debut Fishing for the Little Pike, a genre-defying tale of a young woman’s pilgrimage to her home in Lapland.
*The program will begin with a short discussion with Lola Rogers on the book and her translation, followed by a Q&A with Nordic Book Club attendees.*

When Elina makes her annual summer trip to her remote family farm in Lapland, she has an important mission: catch the pike in their local pond in three days, or she and the love of her life will die. Despite her usual success, this year’s trip grows difficult when deadly supernatural creatures intervene, and a murder detective arrives. Can Elina catch the pike and end the curse that began when a youthful love affair turned sour? Will Sergeant Janatuinen make it back to civilization in one piece? And why is Lapland in summer so weird?

Fishing for the Little Pike is an audacious, satisfying blend of fantasy, folk tale, and nature writing.
