This year, the 100th anniversary of Strindberg’s death will be commemorated by events in Sweden and around the world, including:

• “Strindberg” at the Nordiska Museet in Stockholm (through Jan. 1, 2013), featuring personal items, family photos and original manuscripts.
• “Sender A. Strindberg” at the Post Museum in Stockholm (Mar. 23–Dec. 31), focusing on the author’s letters and correspondence.
• Musical performances at the Stockholm Concert House
• A traveling exhibition of Strindberg’s own photographs that will visit museums throughout Sweden during the anniversary year.
Care to walk “in Strindberg’s footsteps”? Be sure to visit:
• The Strindberg Museum (Strindbergsmuseet) is housed in his reconstructed apartment complete with his 3,000-volume personal library.
• The Intima Teater, founded by Strindberg in 1907 and restored in 2002, is now a 100-seat theater for live performance, especially works by Strindberg.
• Röda Rummet, the inspiration for Strindberg’s 1879 novel The Red Room, is a magnificent Baroque-style room in Stockholm’s Berns Hotel. A gathering place for bohemians and free-thinkers in Strindberg’s day, the Red Room is now used for private dinners and gatherings.
