We were drawn to this plaque on Library Way partially because of the water theme — and also for the quote — but author Isak’s Dinesen story is just as interesting. First of all, Isak Dinesen is a pen name; the author’s real name is Karen Blixen (and her friends called her “Tania”). Dinesen/Blixen is the Danish writer who authored Out of Africa (based on her time in Kenya) and Babette’s Feast, both of which became Academy Award-winning films. To find out more about Blixen’s life, visit the Karen Blixen Museum website (the link is to her museum in Denmark; there’s another one in Kenya).
Another great quote from Dinsen/Blixen: “The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.” (Out of Africa, 1937)
