Today, the International Library in Stockholm opens their annual Children’s book week. The aim of the week is to provide opportunities for children who do not have Swedish as their mother tongue to meet “their” authors and to discover the richness in being able to read in several languages.

This year, four authors participate in the program and visit schools and librarys in Sweden; dr. Muri Bunanta from Indonesia, Roberto Piumini from Italy, Jawahir A Farah, Somalian writer living in London, Sinan Hallak, illustrator from Lebanon, and Fatimah Sharaf al-Din, from Lebanon.

Tonight at 5:30 pm there´s an open seminar at the International Library with ALMA jurymember Mats Kempe as moderator. More about the program here.
