Buy Passport to all Global Salon Events

The Global Salon: SWEDEN takes an astonishing look at multiculturalism and how the country’s evolving pluralistic landscape is a reimaging unto itself.  Host Eddie Robinson will lead audiences to an extraordinary quest of unexpected facets of daily life within contemporary Swedish culture. This Global Salon will also highlight gender equality measures and expose political implications relative to the first volume of the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson's crime novel trilogy, "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo."
