Eliza is in Chicago this weekend as part of Taste of Iceland in Chicago 2016. She is leading a discussion called “The Write Stuff: Why Iceland Inspires Us to Put Pen to Paper” on March 20th at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. Iceland is one of the most popular destinations for creative minds, and Eliza will focus her talk on what makes Iceland so inspirational for lovers of the written word.
