Pippi Longstocking and the Moomins continue to be favorites among English readers young and old. In this panel discussion, we will cover some of the aspects that make Nordic children’s literature unique as well as the challenges and opportunities for bringing Nordic children’s literature to English language audiences in the current publishing climate. This event is part of WorldKidLit month, which takes place every September and celebrates world literature and translation for children and young adults.
*Please note that is not a children’s program.
The panelists are Laura Simeon, Mia Spangenberg, Lotta Gavel Adams, and moderator Elizabeth DeNoma.
