Under 40 Book Group at the Bar

  • Garden Home Growlers 7410 Southwest Oleson Road Portland, OR, 97223 United States (map)

Are you someone under 40 that likes books, beers, and meeting people?  If so, join us at Garden Home Growlers (located inside Lamb’s Thriftway). We’ll be talking about The Long Ships by Frans G. Bengtsson.

The Long Ships resurrects the fantastic world of the tenth century AD when the Vikings roamed and rampaged from the northern fastnesses of Scandinavia down to the Mediterranean. Bengtsson’s hero, Red Orm—canny, courageous, and above all lucky—is only a boy when he is abducted from his Danish home by the Vikings and made to take his place at the oars of their dragon-prowed ships. Packed with pitched battles and blood feuds and told throughout with wit and high spirits, Bengtsson’s book is a splendid adventure that features one of the most unexpectedly winning heroes in modern fiction” (New York Book Review).
