Jean-Claude Mourlevat visits Sweden

The 2021 laureate Jean-Claude Mourlevat visits Sweden and has a full slate of events lined up in Gothenburg, Vimmerby and Stockholm. Meet him in onstage conversations where you can hear him talk about his writing.

Jean-Claude Mourlevat is one of France’s leading children and young adult authors. With a particular love for fairy tale, fable and fantasy, he draws on literary traditions to create worlds that resemble no other. Since his publishing debut in 1997, his books have been translated into nearly 30 languages. His novel Jefferson (Lilla Piratförlaget, 2020) is the first to be published in Swedish. You can hear about this and his other books in one of the public author talks during his visit to Sweden.
