We are very pleased to invite you to the Nordic writer's event „Children's Literature – trends and taboos" November 13th at 6 PM in Aula, Main building at Vilnius University.
The following Nordic writers will participate in the event, Cecilie Eken (Denmark), Svein Nyhus (Norway), Viveka Sjögren (Sweden) and Timo Parvela (Finland).
Children's literature has for decades had a central position in the Nordic countries, with writers influencing and being important to several generations. The genre is getting wide attention both in the media and the academia, the publishing houses and book clubs. But since good books for children are in fact read by adults, to children, it's more and more often called "all ages" books, fading out the issue of age when talking about quality literature. One of the most essential questions is still what kind of literature, topics and trends we want to explore with children.
