Catch Saga Land – with Richard Fidler & Kari Gislason at Empire Theatre on November 9 at Armitage Centre- Heritage Bank Auditorium.
Together, Richard and Kári travel across Iceland, to the places where the sagas unfolded a thousand years ago. They cross fields, streams and fjords to immerse themselves in the folklore of this fiercely beautiful island. And there is another mission: to resolve a longstanding family mystery — a gift from Kári's Icelandic father that might connect him to the greatest of the saga authors.
A gripping blend of family mystery, contemporary stories and the beautiful & bloody Viking tales, set against the starkly stunning landscape of Iceland.
These are tales of blood feuds, of dangerous women, and people who are compelled to kill the ones they love the most. The sagas are among the greatest stories ever written, but the identity of their authors is largely unknown.
Broadcaster Richard Fidler and author Kári Gíslason are good friends. They share a deep attachment to the sagas of Iceland – the true stories of the first Viking families who settled on that remote island in the Middle Ages.
Richard Fidler presents ‘Conversations with Richard Fidler’, an in-depth, up-close-and-personal interview program broadcast across Australia on ABC Radio.

He is the author of The Promise of Iceland and The Ash Burner. As well as memoir and fiction, he also publishes scholarly articles, travel writing and reviews.
