There's a chill in the air...

With an impeding blizzard about to strike the DC area, there definitely seems to be a bit of chill in the air, or that could be just some Nordic Cool, the massive festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., with artists and designers displaying art and culture from the very tiptop of the globe (which I mentioned last week).  

I had the opportunity to attend Monday's panel, "From Classics to Crime-Translating Nordic Fiction for American Readers," moderated by Katherine A. Powers. It was a very insightful panel discussion, but for those of you who missed it, the Washington City Paper ran a superb interview with Ms. Allan yesterday.

The festival is winding down, but there still are several more panels, plays, and tastings to be discovered.

Tomorrow, I will be sure to update the DC-based tribe on the Francophonie 2013 Cultural Festival, taking place now through April 13th in the nation's capital. A demain!
