Letters from the North American-Icelandic Children’s Newspaper Sólskin (2023)


An open-access e-book collecting transcriptions and my own original English translations of a group of letters written by children from the North-American Icelandic community and published in Sólskin (Engl Sunshine), an Icelandic-language children’s newspaper. Sólskin was published out of Winnipeg, Manitoba as an insert intended to be clipped out from the larger Icelandic-language newspaper Lögberg. The book includes 155 individual letters published between October 1915 and April 1918.

The full e-book is available open-access here.
