Meeting with Nordic winners (digital)
The stricter infection control measures adopted by the Norwegian authorities for the Bergen region from 7-14 February mean that LitFestBergen must cancel all physical events. All ticket purchases for physical events will be refunded. Streaming tickets costing NOK 40.00 for this event will be available at ticketco.no. A number of programme items will be shown free on YouTube.
LitFestBergen invites you to meet Finland’s Monika Fagerholm, winner of the Nordic Council Literature Prize for 2020, as well as Finn Jenny Lucander and Swede Jens Mattsson, who jointly won the Nordic Council Children and Young People’s Literature Prize.
Both winning works depict dark human experiences. The children’s book Vi är lajon! deals with serious illness, while Vem dödade bambi? takes group rape as its starting point. How can such material be communicated to different generations of readers? What is the difference between writing for adults and children? And does a Nordic literary community exist? The conversation is moderated by Jan H Landro.
Speech by Sofie Hermansen Eriksen, head of the secretariat for the Nordic Council literature prizes.
In collaboration with the secretariat for the Nordic Council literature prizes.
This event will be in Norwegian.
