Terrorism took our children
Norway and Nigeria share a traumatic experience – terrorist attacks directed at children and young people. How can parents go on living after the very worst has happened?
This is one of the questions Nigerian Helon Habila asks in his documentary book The Chibok Girls, which investigates what happened when Boko Haram abducted 276 girls in northern Nigeria during 2014. Brit Bildøen’s critically acclaimed novel Sju dagar i august (Seven Days in August) deals with a couple who are still struggling with their sorrow eight years after their daughter was killed in Norway’s Utøya massacre on 22 July 2011.
How authors can approach such traumatic incidents is the topic when Habila and Bildøen meet for a conversation moderated by author Aage Storm Borchgrevink.
The conversation will be in English.
