On Saturday the 17th of September Isol, the 2013 laureate of the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, will participate in Kolibrí – an artistic children’s festival in Helsinki. Among other things she will read stories and run a graphic workshop for children.

The visit to Helsinki is part of a tour to different European countries. Among other things Isol will also  be at the OBA, the public library in Amsterdam, on the 30th of September where there is an exhibition of her work.

Isol is an illustrator, cartoonist, graphic artist, writer, singer and composer. When she received the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award the jury described her work like this:

“Taking children’s clear view of the world as her starting point, she addresses their questions with forceful artistic expression and offers open answers. With liberating humour and levity, she also deals with the darker aspects of existence.”
