Anu Partenan is a Finnish journalist and author of The Nordic Theory of Everything. She lived in the U.S. for several years, married an American, and became a U.S. citizen in 2013. Eventually, the more humane services and compassionate culture of Finland was the lure that inspired Anu and her husband to leave New York and set up home in Finland. Having lived in both countries, Anu understands the disconnect between what we call “freedom” in the U.S. as it contrasts with the intrinsic freedom inherent in the Nordic countries. There is a reason why Finland has been ranked the happiest country in the world for the past three years, and Anu will be happy to tell us all about it. All Praxis events include lots of time for questions.
