The American Nightmare [sold out]
Thomas Seltzer is an American with his roots in the prairies of Kansas and Texas, and he lived there with his Norwegian mother and American father for the first six years of his life. When they moved to Norway he missed America, dreamt of America, loved America. The concern of the past few years after the election of President Trump and the storming of the Congress on 6 January 2021 have made Thomas Seltzer unhappy and worried about his homeland. Why is it that the American Dream has now become a nightmare?
In the book Amerikansk Karmageddon – mitt fordømte fedreland (American Karmageddon – my damned motherland) Seltzer tells us about his own family history and with it the USA’s history. He meets the USA expert and scriptwriter Gjermund Stenberg Eriksen for a discussion about why the country has become what it has now become.
The event will be in Norwegian.
