Friday 22.10 at 6pm: “Sarvlax – a Manor in My Heart and Mind” by Alexandra Ramsay

 Dear friend of Arkadia, You are warmly invited to “Sarvlax – a Manor in My Heart and Mind” by Alexandra Ramsay on Friday 22.10 at 6pm. Alexandra Ramsay is a teacher and a Doctor in Philosophy, she is one of the authors of a new book on Finnish cultural history entitled “Sarvlax”. The book mirrors 600 years of history through the spectra of one of the largest manor houses in Finland. Alexandra Ramsay is a direct descendant of the families who owned Sarvlax through the centuries. This lecture is part of a series called Learn About Finland and a result of the collaboration between Arbis and the bookshop. The talk will be in English but questions will naturally be answered in Swedish, and also in Finnish. Warm regards, Ian Entrance is free and green tea will be served. A donation of €2 (or more!) is suggested and would be very welcome. The book, in Swedish, will be available at a special price at the bookshop. Helsingfors Arbis will soon offer other lectures, on various topics related to Finland, at the bookshop. For example: “Why and how do Finns consume Alcohol?”, “The Sighing of Finns”, “Finland in Facts” and “The Brief History of Charity in Swedish-Finnish History”.
