Ocean Bound Women – On-line Talk

22nd March 2023 (19:00 – 20:00 CET)

Anders Hallengren presents his intriguing book, Ocean Bound Women, a narrative of circumnavigating the globe in the 1880s. Based on family documents stored in a seaman’s chest, this book provides a scholarly account of the history of the Swedish sailing ship Atlantic (1876–1911) and her crew. Part of the book is based upon a diary written by a Scandinavian woman, which stands as the uniting text for 1885–1887, connecting the reader to all events in the chronicle. Other sources consist of manuscripts, documents and accounts collected from family descendants along with oral traditions and personal memories—all hitherto unpublished. This is a touching life story of two motherless sisters who took on a ship in their teens: a book about life on the oceans and meeting with people from many nations.

ELB(A) English Language Book club

girl with books

Our book club has a MeetUp page MeetUp.com/ELBexA/. We have moved out meetings on-line so that we can continue to meet and discuss good books. We meet on the third Tuesday of the month starting at 18:30. There are usually about 8 to 10 people at any one meeting. Some people have discovered that they prefer to meet on-line and members who have moved away from Gothenburg can now still participate.

We have a summer recess and begin again in September.
