The Oslo Writers’ League is proud to present These Twisted Roots, a collection of poetry, short fiction and non fiction written by twenty-three of its members. The book will be officially launched at Deichmanske Hovedbiblioteket on 28 October 2015 at 18:00.
About the Book
In this third anthology from the Oslo Writers’ League, we have drawn on the themes of Wild and Underground to bring you some of the most diverse writing in both style and genre that we have gathered together to date; each piece is as unique in its interpretation of these themes as the autumn leaves that carpet the forest floors, or the snowflakes that spread over Oslo like a cloak in the winter. From personal essays and poetry to short stories and speculative fiction, we will not tell you to which theme each piece belongs, but will rather let you wander through our collective wilderness and turn over the rocks, seek the hidden tunnels and passages, and journey where you will.
About the Event
All are welcome to join us in celebrating the launch of the book and in supporting Redd Barna (Save the Children) particularly to aid children affected by the Syrian refugee crisis. All proceeds from book sales and from the auction of the original artworks in the book by local artist Evelinn Enoksen will go to Redd Barna.
If you like, you can join the event on Facebook, where you can get updates, see sneak previews, and see who else is coming. See the event on our calendar here to get details of the whole program.
This is a free event with fantastic food from Elvebredden Catering, performances from the “Dagsangene på Sagene” choir, and readings from the book. You can buy wine or beer from the bar, but soft drinks are free. You can purchase the book (150nok) with cash or your card, bid in our silent auction for original artwork from the book, and purchase copies of the previous two anthologies, North of the Sun South of the Moon (2013) and All the Ways Home (2014).
