Welcome to the American club of Sweden!

We’ve been around for 100 years. Our staying power comes through our purpose: to bring people together. Americans. Swedes.  Or anyone interested in either country. To create platforms for advancing ideas. Or sharing interests. Both online and in person. Join us.

We are proud to share the news of Julie’s upcoming engagements in relation to her book The Pendulum. Kulturnyheterna recently reviewed her book and you might still be able to see it on Svt Play (at three minutes in). 

Launch event for "The Pendulum" (in English) including reading, presentation and Q&A with Julie Lindahl. Panel discussion among founding members of New Voices. Followed by a mingle with light refreshments. Both the Swedish and English version of the book will be available for purchase with payment possible via Swish or credit card.

Poem: When Giving Is All We Have

 

alberto riosWe give because someone gave to us.
We give because nobody gave to us.

 
We give because giving has changed us.
We give because giving could have changed us.

 
We have been better for it,
We have been wounded by it—

 
Giving has many faces: It is loud and quiet,
Big, though small, diamond in wood-nails.

Its story is old, the plot worn and the pages too,
But we read this book, anyway, over and again:

 
Giving is, first and every time, hand to hand,
Mine to yours, yours to mine.

 
You gave me blue and I gave you yellow.
Together we are simple green. You gave me

 
What you did not have, and I gave you
What I had to give—together, we made

 
Something greater from the difference.

-  Alberto Rios
