The Raisin King by the Swedish author Fredrik Sjöberg is about the life of the Swedish zoologist and earthworm scientist Gustav Eisen. In the intersection of scientific dissemination and literary biography, he has won both readers and awards. The English sheep farmer James Rebanks has written The Shepherd’s Life. The book is about Rebank’s work managing a farm and upholding a 600-year-old family tradition in the English Lake District. Meet them in conversation with Morten Strøksnes, who, with Shark Drunk (Havboka), served up a Norwegian success in the vital field of non-fiction where human beings meet nature and science meets art. The conversation will be moderated by Hilde Østby.
