KUREREN- ONLINE

Kureren begins in 1942, when Ester, a Jewish courier, flees to Sweden after narrowly escaping the Gestapo.  In Stockholm, she meets resistance hero Gerhard Falkum who has fled from the Germans as well as  speculation that he murdered his wife Åse. Ester and Falkum’s budding relationship ends abruptly when Falkum apparently dies in a fire in 1943. Twenty-five years later Gerhard Falkum re-appears in Oslo. He wants to resume contact with the daughter he had with Åse. Join us as we read this thriller and contemplate the reason he re-appears after 25 years. This class is designed for learners with a strong grasp of Norwegian and desire to actively engage in their learning through conversation, grammar exercises, vocabulary development, read alouds, and special projects.

SØSTERKLOKKENE- IN-PERSON

Only 28 of the 2,000 stavkirker that once existed in Norway exist today. In Lars Mytting’s Søsterklokkene, the fate of Butangen stavkirke and its magical bells is interoven with the fates of the three main characters: Astrid Hekne, whose ancestors had donated the bells to the church; Kai Schweigaard, the new minister who wants to modernize life in Butangen; and Gerhard Schönhauer, the German art and architecture student who has come to Butangen to supervise the dismantling and moving of the stave church to Germany.  Set in the late 1800’s in a remote part of Telemark, Mytting uses historical detail to create a world for both

his characters and his readers to inhabit.  Please join us as we journey back in time with Mytting´s characters. This class is conducted in Norwegian and includes grammar review for which we use Norsk grammatikk: Norsk som andrespråk, arbeidsbok.

Texts: Søsterklokkene by Lars Mytting and Norsk grammatikk: Norsk som andrespråk, arbeidsbok by Kirsti MacDonald.
