The Reykjavik City Library and Reykjavik UNESCO City of Literature jointly present an exhibition of drawings by author and artist Kristín Ómarsdóttir from her recent fictional book about two Hollywood legends, Marilyn Monroe and Greta Garbo.
Kristín’s fascination with the two starlets led her to first draw them in old books and then write about them, which in turn inspired more drawings. Now those drawings are presented to the public and excerpts from the book will also be read at the opening, at Reykjavik City Library, Tryggvagata 15, Tuesday August 7th at 5 p.m.
The exhibition will be up until August 31 2012.
Everyone is welcome to the opening.
