The Half-Drowned King, Book Talk with Linnea Hartsuyker

The Half-Drowned King (Harper, August 2017), Linnea Hartsuyker’s assured and compelling debut novel, launches an epic saga drawn from her own Scandinavian lineage. This first installment of a trilogy brings to life the cold and violent ninth century when Norway’s first king, Harald the Fair-Haired, united a warring nation and ascended to the throne.

Drawing on extensive research, Hartsuyker crafts a richly-veined work of historical fiction that is propelled by her natural storytelling gifts.

Following the discussion, copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
