Live Author Event with Eliza Reid, First Lady of Iceland


About This Event

Join All She Wrote Books for a live author talk with First Lady of Iceland, Eliza Reid on her new book Secrets of the Sprakkar, out on Feb 8 from Sourcebooks! The author will discuss her love letter to her adopted homeland, offering a window into a society that sees the benefits of gender equality & how people everywhere can work towards achieving it. About Secrets of the Sprakkar: Through her own unconventional story & those of other sprakkar (Icelandic for extraordinary & outstanding women), Reid explores the unique combination of policy, people, & history that has resulted in Iceland topping the World Economic Forums Gender Gap Index for the past 12 years. Studies show increased equality leads to a happier, longer living, & more economically prosperous society for all its citizens. From parenting to politics, sexuality to sports, Reid examines what has led to this level of equality in Iceland and shares insights on how we can all help to level the playing field in our lives.
