Author and presenter Mark Levengood opened the new summer exhibition at Astrid Lindgren’s Näs yesterday. The theme this year is Emil in Lönneberga, and visitors can learn more about how Astrid Lindgren created the Emil stories, and her successful co-operation with illustrator Björn Berg. Many original illustrations by Björn Berg are exhibited at Näs.

– Emil shows that all people must be allowed to make mistakes and still be loved for whom they are. Hence the need for Emil today and in all times henceforth, said Mark Levengood in his opening speech.

The exhibition also contains screening of a newly produced film about the actual connection between Näs and the making of the Emil stories.

Furthermore, every Sunday both children and adults have the possibility to carve in wood in the wood shed next to Näs – just like Emil.

The exhibition is open until September 8.
