In 2021, Port Townsend Public Library Director Melody Sky Weaver starred on the Swedish reality television show Allt för Sverige (known in the US as The Great Swedish Adventure). The show takes ten Americans to Sweden to trace their Swedish ancestry and meet their living relatives. Weaver will recap her life-changing journey of traveling and meeting family during the pandemic and share fun behind the scenes stories of what it is like to be in a foreign country on a reality TV show. She will also talk about the library's genealogical resources and how they helped her get cast on the show.

This event will be both In-person and via Zoom.  Please send an email to if you need the link for the zoom.
