LitteraLund Festival, one of Sweden’s important arenas for children and young people’s literature, has launched their program for April 16-21.

This year’s festival focus on subjects such as Children’s dominion – chaos and order?, Fantasy and the Youth book here and now. Johan Unenge, Sweden’s first ambassador of reading will participate, this year’s ALMA recipient or recipients will be presented, and children’s favourite Alfie Atkins will be celebrated as he’s turning 40!

Among the international guests are the French illustrators Stephanie Blake (the series of rabbit Simon) and Charlotte Gastaut (Fanny’s amazing journey, 2011, and Thumbelina, 2012), and debutante Josephine Angelini (USA) who created the romatic action of Greek mythology.
