Discover the beauty of poetry

Canadian Friends of Finland and Runeberg Lodge 124 invite you to join the Runeberg Study Group in an informal English language, small group discussion  about some of the poetry & other works of Johan Ludvig Runeberg, Finland’s National Poet.

The national poet of Finland wrote in Swedish and exercised a great influence on Swedish literature.

He was the first Finnish writer to achieve a broad national significance and a wide international fame. Read more here - 

Sessions are taking place on Wednesdays: 22 April, 23 September, 28 October & 25 November

At 2 p.m. in the Finnish Library
