  1. Subject: FW: new book/ trip and visit to Denmark May 11-17

    Kære venne,
    I am an American who lived and worked in Aarhus for seven years (1978-1985). I have just completed a book on Denmark and Danish culture to be publihsde this Spring in the U.S. by MCfalrand Publishing company. I will be visiting my son this coming May 11-17. He lives in Svendborg, but I hope to be able to be in Aarhus or Copenhagen for a talk on my book, interview, etc.

    I live in Orlando, Florida and teach at the University of Central Florida.

    Med venlig hilsen,
    Norman Berdichevsky

    About the Book
    For many non-Danes of the world, Denmark remains an enigma. Too often confused with other Scandinavian countries, this southernmost Nordic nation has been characterized by stereotypes and cliches related to socialism, cradle-to-grave security, football, pornography, Hamlet, pigs, dairy cattle, and beer. This enlightening guide to Danish society, culture, and history offers an inside look at the “real” Denmark, highlighting the best of both the country and its people. It details Denmark’s substantial contributions to science, engineering, exploration, seafaring, literature, philosophy, music, architecture, and many other fields. Brief portraits depict well-known Danes, including “Clown Prince of Denmark” Victor Borge, Hans Christian Andersen, Kierkegaard, and Out of Africa author Karen Blixen. Throughout, Denmark’s outstanding human rights record, democratic institutions, and humanistic traditions are clear. By illuminating Danish culture and clarifying misperceptions, this work fosters a greater appreciation of Denmark, its people, and their way of life.

    I enjoyed so much watching this episode about The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, because I visited the museum in 2009 and had a great time there. Moreover, when I returned home I found out that the book I was given at the museum shop was in Danish Language and not in English , so I wrote to the director and told him that Iam ready to send back the Danish copy by post and I asked politely for an English copy. They answered me saying that my English copy on its way. In 5 days I got the copy and of course I sent back the Danish copy.
    Best regards
