Authors in Aarhus: Nickolas Butler

Info about event
Nickolas Butler’s successful debut novel Shotgun Love Songs is at first glance a simple story of four male friends from small town Little Wing, Wisconsin, who grow up to have very different lives, but are bound together by their childhood bond and their home town. Butler’s simple story enchanted the world, most likely because it is a book that we can all recognize a bit of ourselves in. The book shows us how our heart can be bound to one single, special place in the world, and that we all have a soundtrack to our lives…
Nickolas Butler will be interviewed by Kim Skotte from Politiken, about all these themes in his writing. It's Butler's first trip to Denmark and especially to Aarhus, where his Danish publisher, Klim, is based.
The event will be in English.
