Swedish writers at Salon du Livre

This year Salon du Livre looks north. Under the heading Les Lettres Nordiques, 40 Nordic authors will participate in debates and seminars, the largest number ever.

The Swedish authors writing for children and young adults include Annika Thor, Ulf Nilsson, Johanna Thydell and Ingrid Olsson. A large exhibition of Nordic books in their original languages and in translation into French will be on display.

Also, the 2010 recipient of the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, Kitty Crowther will be there! She will talk about her work in the Nordic Pavillion on Monday, together with Jury Member Ulla Rhedin. Here you will find the details of the program.

For an interesting overview of Nordic children’s literature (in French), we recommend this article in Le Monde.

So if you are planning to meet spring in Paris – don’t miss Salon du Livre.
