PANEL DISCUSSION, ALL AGES
This year LICAF is celebrating the life and work of novelist, painter, illustrator and comic strip author Tove Jansson. Tove Jansson is best known as the creator of the Moomins which has been translated into more than 50 languages. This event explores the phenomenon of the Moomins as well as revealing much more about this extraordinary woman and the huge legacy she has left across the world.
The panel will feature Sophia Jansson (Tove Jansson’s niece and Artistic Director of Oy Moomin Characters Ltd), Tuula Karjalainen (author of ‘Tove Jansson: Work and Love’), Jonathan Edwards (joint-creator with Felt Mistress of ‘Archipelagogo’ a new installation commissioned for LICAF 2017). It will be hosted by comics expert Paul Gravett.
There will be signings immediately after the event with Tuula Karjalainen.
