Readings in northern Europe
Leifsson frequently gives readings from his books in schools, libraries and other cultural institutions using a beamer and his laptop computer to showcase the illustrations. Having grown up in Copenhagen as a bilingual child he is comfortable with readings in Icelandic, Danish, English and German. The video above is by Michael Fetteris from a book week in Cologne, Germany in the summer of 2011. Last reading was at the book festival "Vild med ord" in Ridehuset, Aarhus, Denmark on September 1th.
