At the moment, Kitty Crowther is in Guadalajara, invited by FIL, the largest spanish speaking book fair in the world, with over 600 000 visitors! A large part of Kitty Crowther’s first day at FIL was spent meeting the media. The interest in learning more about this year’s Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award winner is high! Here’s one interview already published on newspaper El Informador’s webpage.
Two Poka & Mine books, En el cine and El despertar have recently been translated into Spanish (published by Cuatro Azules) and since earlier Mi amigo Juan as well as Alors? and Scritch, Scratch dip clapote! (published by Corimbo) are available for the Spanish speaking children.
Kitty Crowther also had the honor of being the opening speaker of FILUSTRA, the book fair’s new forum for illustration. In front of an audience with many illustrators she spoke about being true to yourself as an illustrator, her inspiration and some of the themes she keeps returning to in her books.
