Karen & Brett were flanked by Brett’s accompanists, all in beautiful period costumes. It was an extremely lively and enjoyable event, a perfect blend of Sweden’s Gustavian era reading and music. We at the American Scandinavian Society are so proud for having had even the smallest hand in furthering Karen’s literary career. We hope to hear more from both of these talented artists.
