Podcast | Halloween walk 2020

Friday October 30th 2020 - Monday November 2nd 2020

Due to COVID we cant celebrate Halloween like we are used to. Borgarbókasafnið invites you and your famliy to a  digital Halloween walk, which you can enjoy anytime anywhere.

Sunna Dís Másdóttir will read from dark, spooky and sometimes terribly scary children´s and young adult books written by Icelandic authors. You´re free to take the walk wherever- in your own neighbourhood, during nighttime in a church yard or in the comfort of your own bed.. Find the batteries for your flashlight, get your vampire teeth ready and put your shoes on- if you dare!
