Hailed by The New Yorker as “among the most compelling documents to come out of the war,” From Day to Day is a World War II concentration camp diary—secretly written by Norwegian Odd Nansen. Arrested in January 1942, Nansen, son of polar explorer and humanitarian Fridtjof Nansen, was held captive for the duration of the war in various Nazi camps in Norway and Germany. Through selected readings, Author Timothy Boyce will explain who Nansen was, why he was arrested, why he wrote the diary, how he preserved it, and why this diary is as important today as it was when first written. The reading will be held at Norway House, 913 E. Franklin Ave. Tickets are $10 for general public, $5 for members. More info: www.norwayhouse.org/calendar/from-day-to-day
