Scandi Center presents Writing the Finnish- American Story

March 19, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Finlandia Foundation National’s Lecturer of the Year (LOY), Suzanne Matson, will be Finlandia Foundation Boston‘s guest speaker in March.

Suzanne Matson is a poet, author and English Professor at Boston College. She holds an MA in Creative Writing and a PhD in English from the University of Washington. The lecture entitled, “Writing the Finnish-American Story” is based on her finding that audiences are interested in talking about the process of turning personal and public history into literature. She will also read from her works and take questions.

There will be a coffee break after the lecture.
