INLUS Author’s Corner – Nancy Marie Brown

Join author Nancy Marie Brown in a discussion of her latest book Looking for the Hidden Folk.


Join us on October 3 for an Authors Corner program with Nancy Marie Brown on her new book Looking for the Hidden Folk – How Iceland’s Elves can Save the Earth, which will be available on October 4th, published by Pegasus Books!

In exploring how Icelanders interact with nature—and their idea that elves live among us—Nancy Marie Brown shows us how altering our perceptions of the environment can be a crucial first step toward saving it.

Looking for the Hidden Folk is a wonderfully quirky exploration of our place in the universe. Looking for answers in history, science, religion, and art—from ancient times to today—Brown finds that each discipline defines what is real and unreal, natural and supernatural, demonstrated and theoretical, alive and inert. Each has its own way of perceiving and valuing the world around us. And each discipline defines what an Icelander might call an elf.

Illuminated by her own encounters with Iceland’s Otherworld—in ancient lava fields, on a holy mountain, beside a glacier or an erupting volcano, crossing the cold desert at the island’s heart on horseback—Looking for the Hidden Folk offers an intimate conversation about how we look at and find value in nature. It reveals how the words we use and the stories we tell shape the world we see. It argues that our beliefs about the Earth will preserve—or destroy it.

The interview will be conducted by Carrie Kozubal.
