In this episode, I chat with Jan Smedh, co-owner of The English Bookshop in Uppsala, Sweden, and the events manager Stina Björkelid about what it's like to live in Sweden during the winter months, the history of the area, and how reading fiction develops empathy and tolerance.
In 2018, The English Bookshop in Uppsala, Sweden was chosen by the London Book Fair as its International Excellence bookstore of the year. Jan Smedh and his colleague Christer founded the bookshop in 1995 in the historic town of Uppsala; since then the bookshop has grown to two other locations.
