Philip Pullman to Sweden

The 2005 ALMA laureate Philip Pullman is one of the confirmed speakers at the upcoming Astrid Lindgren conference in Stockholm in November.

Philip Pullman will talk about the ecological system of the book industry and its influence on how we read books. The main theme of the conference is “Reading, thought and democracy”, fully evoking the spirit of Astrid Lindgren.

The conference is arranged by Saltkråkan AB, Rabén & Sjögren and Astrid Lindgren-sällskapet. ALMA is one of the collaborators.
