Former mayor, Jón Gnarr, is about to set off to New York for his book launch, reports RÚV.
Jón will be at the Strand Book Store on June 19 to read out passages from his memoir Gnarr!: How I Became the Mayor of a Large City in Iceland and Changed the World.
Jón will be joined in conversation with Hamilton Nolan, one of Gawker’s longest tenured writers.
The book is officially released on June 24 but those who attend the launch can buy a pre-signed early copy.
