I am pleased to share with you the news that my words and images can be found within the pages of the Swedish-American publication, Nordstjernan. This esteemed publication, founded in 1872, has been continuously published for 139 years, and brings the news of Sweden to its subscribers in New York, Chicago and San Francisco. It is an incredible honor to be included in this publication, and to be so warmly welcomed by its editor and publisher Ulf Martensson.
My column, American Eyes in Sweden, can be found in the print edition of Nordstjernan. Updates and select photography will be shared on the Nordstjernan website. If you should have suggestions, news tips, or ideas, please feel free to contact me at lisa @ Nordstjernan.com.
In addition to Nordstjernan, Ulf also publishes the contemporary magazine Nordic Reach.
