Shaun Tan to Lillehammer

Now it´s official, Shaun Tan is one of the guests at the literature festival in Lillehammer, Norway, in May. The Norwegian Festival of Literature is the largest literature festival in the Nordic countries. Its main focus is Norwegian contemporary literature and the interaction between literature and society. This year’s theme is MONEY. Does money make us happier? Is money the root of all evil? Norway has gone from being a poor fishing and farming community to become the world’s richest countries. How has the great prosperity affected the Norwegian authors and the way we write about?
