Location: Olav H. Hauge
Price: 190/80 (student)
Winner meeting: Nora Dåsnes
22 July 2011 is a watershed date in history. No Norwegians will forget where they were and what they were doing that day of the attack on Utøya. Afterwards everyone was shaken, angry or sad until everyday life returned little by little.
Nora Dåsnes won the Nordic Council’s Children’s and Young People’s Literature Prize in 2022 for her graphic novel Ubesvart anrop (Unanswered Call). Here the horror and the time after the attack are described through the eyes of Rebekka. She wasn’t on Utøya, and she didn’t know anyone who was there, but she is frightened and just as much affected by the attack.
She starts high school the same autumn, but is unable to forget or shut what happened out of her mind. Meet the award-winner Nora Dåsnes in conversation with the author Robin van de Walle.
The event will be in Norwegian.
